Demonstrating what it is like to be an adult learner in todaya€™s world, this book focuses on language, literacy and numeracy learning. The authors explore the complex relationship between learning and adultsa€™ lives, following a wide range of individual students in various formal learning situations, from college environments to a young homeless project, and a drug support and aftercare centre. The study is rooted in a social practices approach and examines how peoplea€™s lives shape their learning. Themes addressed range from: how literacy is learned through participation and how barriers such as violence and ill-health impact on peoplea€™s lives.
