How do adults learn? What is the task of the educator in adult education? What can adults do to take charge of their learning process? Learning means change and transformation.
Coenraad van Houten tells us that, in order to learn, we must first awaken the will. True adult education, he says, enables our spiritual I to accomplish this.
He describes the forms in which learning can be meaningfully structured and offers advice and ideas to help overcome specific learning blocks. This book regards the business of adult education as a full profession, and it provides a theoretical and practical basis for its real goal - awakening the will.
