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

Adult Learning is a pretty broad construct. In everyday learning, there's Everyday Cognition edited by Lave and Rogoff, and probably other similar volumes.
There are a whole lot of books about people learning about how to teach, although most focus on college students learning a profession--are they adults?
There's also a whole field of learning in the disciplines (academic disciplines) and professions. There's a free such volume at http://wac.colostate.edu/books/textual_dynamics/ 
Again, though, it all depends on what you consider to be an adult, and what sort of learning you're interested in.

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.
