Call for Papers - The Adult Learner
The Journal of Adult and Community Education in Ireland 2007
The Adult Learner is the journal of adult and community education in Ireland founded in the mid 1980s. It aims primarily to serve the needs of the adult education community in the Republic of Ireland and in Northern Ireland by providing a forum for critical reflection on the practices of teaching and learning.
The journal aims to continue to make knowledge, research and writing accessible to the widest possible audience and emphasises the implications of critique for practice. The journal has a long established practice of giving priority to subject matter that addresses disadvantage, social exclusion, equality, workplace learning and the study of the teacher/student relationship. Community education, literacy, citizenship and access issues are also of importance in the journal.
The journal encourages papers from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and overseas that may be of interest in Ireland. The journal invites three kinds of papers.
1. Fully refereed papers of about 5,000 words will engage in debates about the ideas, concepts, theories and practices of the field. This section of the journal will address the need for a refereed journal to provide an Irish forum for adult educators to engage in and influence the direction of adult and community education as a field of practice.
2. Papers and case studies of about 2,000 to 3,000 words will address the need to share examples of good practice and exchange ideas about what works well in various programmes, innovations and contexts. These papers will also engage in a critical analysis of the practical aspects of adult and community education.
3. Resource reviews of about 600-1000 words will provide a review of books, materials and resources that help identify and evaluate a wide variety of teaching and learning resources that may be of interest to adult and community educators whether students in colleges, universities and other learning centres or programme providers and facilitators.
