Adult development and learning have always existed as two separate fields of study, with development falling under psychology and learning under education. Recent advances in theory, research, and practice, however, have made it clear that an important reciprocal relationship exists between them: advances in development frequently lead to learning, and conversely, learning quite often fuels development. The synchronicity between development and learning is responsible for positive changes in many capacities, including insight, intelligence, reflective and meta-cognition, personality expression, interpersonal competence, and self-efficacy. This synchronicity is also leading to the growth of a new discipline at the borders of adult development and learning. The Handbook of Adult Development and Learning is the first to bring together the leading scholars from both adult development and learning to explore what will form the foundation for this new discipline--the latest research at the intersection of these fields. It examines six major aspects of their intersection: foundations, key areas of integration, the self system, higher reaches of development and learning, essential contexts, and specific applications. An introductory chapter explains why it is so important to recognize and fuel the growth of this new discipline. Subsequent chapters review the latest theoretical and empirical literature and provide a rich itinerary for future research.
This handbook is a must-read for all who promote optimal aging. It will be an invaluable reference for scholars in development and education, as well as rich resource for policy makers and practitioners, such as corporate executives and human-resource personnel.

Industry Reviews

"This is indeed the handbook that the field of human development has been waiting for. Development is traditionally and typically associated with early life, but developmental change occurs at all ages. Addressing the interactions among facets of learning and other aspects of developmental change in adulthood, the excellent contributors to this major work have been growing a discipline at the borders of thought. This compendium will be of immense value to researchers and clinicians for years to come."--Lewis P. Lipsitt, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Medical Science, and Human Development, Brown University "Learning and devlopment dominate the adulthood of real people, contrary to the static stereotype of popular culture. Carol Hoare's book skillfully captures the scope and depth of these adult changes. Beginning with a masterful overview of the field, this comprehensive resource documents and illuminates the rich variability of pathways of adult development and adaptation."--Kurt W. Fischer, Charles Warland Bigelow, Professor, and Director of Mind, Brain, and Education, Harvard University Graduate School of Education "The single richest source available today for any teacher, student, practitioner, or scholar interested in adult transformation--the place where adult development and adult learning intersect."--Robert Kegan, Meehan Professor of Adult Learning and Professional Development, Harvard University Graduate School of Education "A timely, comprehensive, and well-written survey of the interaction of adult development and intelligence. It is timely because in the last several years social and behavioral scientists in gerontology have rediscovered the value of lifecourse developmental theory and research in the study of human aging. At the same time, the authors illustrate a large and growing range of research and practice areas in which the topics familiar to gerontologists are located in a much wider variety of settings--education, law, nursing, ethnic studies, management, counseling. [This is] a book likely to make a significant contribution."--George L. Maddox, Duke Center for Aging and Human Development "This is truly a seminal work...The book is truly comprehensive in its inclusion of different perspectives and factors as well as investigative approaches."--PsycCRITIQUES "Learning and devlopment dominate the adulthood of real people, contrary to the static stereotype of popular culture.

With a readable, yet sophisticated text, Hoare has successfully demonstrated how these constructs can be integrated."--The Psychological Record "Carol Hoare brings a fresh perspective to adult development and learning....Part of the reason that is is fresh is that Hoare is trying something new: to bring together learning (adult education) and development (psychology) as interrelated fields and to thereby establish a new discipline or field of study....I am delighted to have it on my shelf."--Leona M. English, St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, Canada, reviewed in Journal of Adult Theological Education
