Case Study- Stretching the Academy? Widening Participation and Outreach Campuses: An Irish Case Study

Idioma: EN


The following case study describes the development of a ‘satellite’ campus by the Department of Adult Education in the National University of Maynooth (NUIM). This outreach campus was established in Kilkenny in the south east of Ireland in 1997. It outlines the origin, rationale and functioning of the campus and ends by considering the strengths, limitations an future prospects for NUIM Kilkenny. The study highlights the inter play between research and pragmatic concerns, and how a philosophy of adult education and pedagogy can give rise to innovative and flexible responses to the challenges and needs of a particular region.
