Peace Education and the Adult Learner

Educational Trends in a Globalized World

Jason J. Campbell and Noël E. Campbell

Peace Education and the Adult Learner presents a survey of recent developments in adult and peace education. This book offers new educational models for teaching adult learners interested in peace education and conflict resolution. The authors masterfully situate the foundations of these models within a discourse of conflict escalation and conflict resolution. Teaching adult learners about peace education also requires the cultivation of keen critical thinking skills and an understanding of basic conflict resolution strategies. Equipped with such tools, adult learners will invariably develop organic models of conflict resolution. Instead of structuring a formulaic, process-based strategy of peace education, this book analyzes contemporary conflicts and contemplates possible strategies for resolution. Peace Education and the Adult Learner explains how educators can inspire their students to develop specific context-based resolution strategies, rather than apply generalized theoretical models to specific instances of conflict. « less more »
