Re: [xmca] Identifying the Top Studies : adult learning

I'd vote for Knud Illeris's Adult Education as well as his Contemporary Theories of Learning: Learning theorists in their own words.  You probably started with Paulo Freire, right? And of course Kohl's book, The Long Haul, co-written by the two of them, about Myles Horton, the American Freire. And there are a number of good books by Canadians, including Peter Sawchuk and David Livingstone's Hidden Knowledge.
