Book connects learning theory, practice

Connecting Adult Learning and Knowledge Management represents an initial attempt to connect adult learning and knowledge management in theory and practice.

It provides educators, learners and organizational development professionals with new strategies and resources for developing active and effective pedagogies, which in turn prepare learners and practitioners to manage knowledge in organizations and higher education.

The book is divided into three main sections: methods and theories for adult teaching and learning; knowledge management in education; and case studies and best practices that consider classroom learning, higher education change and organization development.
