research by key adult educators, researchers and scholars, the review

adult learning policies and practices. First, a brief discussion is given

historical analysis is offered in a decade-by-decade review. Looking back
over the past sixty years, this historical analysis exposes key influences
which have shaped adult learning in Aotearoa, and discusses trends
emerging as significant future directions going into and beyond the 2020s.
