Adult and community education for the twenty-first century is becoming a focal point of learning. Education is no longer reserved for youth. Lifelong learners have broadened the field of education to encompass those who have had the desire to learn but were unable or unwilling to do so because of responsibilities to families and jobs. Changes in societal economics and jobs have resulted in the need for many to learn additional skills. Others want to expand their knowledge in non-work related areas. It is now commonplace for adults in middle or later adulthood to want or need to gain additional education. Issues examined in this subject encompass the different venues available for the dissemination of education to the adult learner and how to accommodate these learners. While adults are increasingly found in traditional offerings of education, adult and community education is not bound by the conventional four walls of the past. There are many educational opportunities available for adults and in many formats. As adult educators, we need to explore the modalities that can be provided and to address the needs of the adult learner. What methods of delivery are most commonly used for adult education? What are the special needs of adult learners? How can teachers meet these needs? How do adults, as compared to youth, learn? What type of funding is available for creating adult and community education programs?
