Knowles, professor emeritus, North Carolina State University Drawing from classic and current literature, as well as from her vast experience in the field, Rosemary S. Caffarella provides both a theoretical framework and a hands-on guide and resource book for those who plan adult education, training, and staff development programs.

Review: Planning Programs for Adult Learners: A Practical Guide for Educators, Trainers, and Staff Developers

User Review  - Stephen Yates - Goodreads

More of a reference than a read through, Caffarella supports a multi-layered, non-linear yet comprehensive approach to program planning. Also has a number of important worksheets/training sheets to use. Best to skim through when actually planning an event. Read full review

User Review  - Steve Bolduc - Goodreads

This top notch guide developed by Rosemary Caffarella is an essential tool for those evolving in the befuddling world of adult education. I would rather say that Caffarella's book is the Bible for every program planner for adult learners. Read full review
