Beschreibung:

As we confront the future of our professional endeavors, we tend to rely with con?dence on longstanding and widely honored assumptions about the world and ourselves. We believe we have accumulated sturdy structures of knowledge, eff- tive practices, and sound values. Yet, we rely on these resources with scant c- sciousness that in the long run our assumptions, practices, and values may not only be inimical to the viability of our profession, but as well, oppressive in their effects on others. There is at least one assumption - common across many professions and cultures - that is of particular signi?cance. It is the assumption that the world is made up of discrete entities or units. There are not only the species of plants and animals, for example, but there is me as opposed to you, us vs. them, my business enterprise in competition with yours, our nation or religion and yours. And with this assumption of separable units, we assemble ways of sustaining and protecting those units of which we feel a part. We erect buildings, laws, schools, governments, and armies to ensure that what is inside the boundary will ?ourish, and what is outside cannot threaten us. In effect, the assumption of a world of independent entities establishes the way in which we understand and conduct ourselves within relationships.
"The delivery of adult education programs has developed into an industry with global players in education and corporate institutions. Education is increasingly becoming a commodity exported to emerging economies by "first world" institutions. With the thirst for such blended shore programs by these consumers, there is a danger of malpractice if educators do not mindfully and critically examine their practice and learn through reflection and analysis. While maintaining a commitment to adult education as a means to educate, train and develop leaders for social sustainability, the impact of these educational practices also needs to be examined.
