Case study- “Research and practice in adult return to study”

Language: EN


This is a case study produced by the Dialogue project Bridges between Research and Practice in universities of lifelong learning (ULLL). The key purpose of the DIALOGUE- Grundtvig network was to bridge the gap between academic research on ULLL and the professional practice around adult teaching, learning and guidance within ULLL-provision. This case study shows how researchers and practitioners came together to investigate the experiences of adult returners to full-time education, and specifically students in a Pre-Entry Access Course at the University of Strathclyde. A qualitative interview-based study provided insights into the learners’ perspectives on a range of issues including approaches to learning, information literacy, engagement and their perceptions of teaching and learning methods used on the course.
