“All adult educators base their work on a theory or paradigm, believes Professor Jyri Manninen*. It is another matter whether the practitioner’s choice of theory is conscious or unconscious.”

Althought the article does not speak about gender, I wonder how we could apply Manninen’s interview to “gender” in adult education.

  • Manninen is Professor of Adult & Continuing Education at the University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu.
