Abstract

The field of adult education is relatively new so we are still striving to build a broad theoretical base from which to base our practice. My first paper looks at theory development in the field to date and how adult educators have used this theory in order to develop programs that will meet the needs of their diverse student population. -- Some of the salient characteristics of the student population have been listed in order that the diversity of the population can be recognized. I decided to take one of the cohorts as the focus on in my second paper. This paper analyzes women in education and the factors that have contributed to their numerical growth in our post secondary systems. -- The third paper focuses on primary research that was conducted by me in 1994. Twenty-six registered nurses responded to a survey conducted in a small hospital in St. John's. The purpose of the survey was to identify motivating factors and impediments that would affect a registered nurse's decision to participate in continuing education programs after she had graduated from a diploma program in nursing.
