Tett, Lyn (2015) Community-based education and learning. In: Universities and engagement: International perspectives on higher education and lifelong learning. Routledge, London, UK, pp. 130-140. ISBN 9781138824430

This chapter shows the contribution that community-based education can make to adults’ learning using a number of examples from practice in order to explore if participating in lifelong learning can contribute to a more equal society. It also examines the role that universities, in partnership with policy makers, practitioners and students, can play in promoting more democratic opportunities. Finally it discusses the role of professional development in enhancing critical engagement. It begins by asking what the term ‘community’ means in order to explore how different conceptualizations impact on practice in community-based education
