Enhancing Creativity in Adult and Continuing Education: Innovative Approaches, Methods, and Ideas


Drawing from the most current research on creativity, this volume of New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education serves as an inspirational and practical guide for adult educators seeking to promote creativity in both their students and themselves. The authors, writing from first-hand experience, discuss innovations in a variety of continuing education settings, including the Harvard Institute for the Management of Lifelong Education; a drug and alcohol prevention program; and a college degree program developed through the collaboration of the Bell Atlantic Corporation and a consortium of community colleges. These case studies illustrate innovative new models of continuing education, unique solutions to common problems, and proven strategies for encouraging dialogue both within a program and with the population served.

This is the 81st issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education.
