Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book goes beyond the standard focus on the technical skills of "how to" and explains the key challenges of planning in the real world of conflicting interests and power relations. Ronald M. Cervero and Arthur L. Wilson reveal planning as a social activity and show that successful planners must be sensitive to the complexities of actual planning practice. They also show how political knowledge and negotiating skill, coupled with an ethical vision, are essential to responsible planning for the education of adults.

Synopsis:

People, politics, and variable funding all contribute to the complexity of the program planning process for continuing education. In this book, Cervero and Wilson articulate a theory of program planning as a social?rather than scientific?process. In so doing, they open up dialogue in an area where debate is badly needed?Must reading for practitioners and professors of adult and continuing education.

?Von Pittman, associate dean, Division of Continuing Education, University of Iowa

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 193-201) and index.
