A growing concern with performance outcomes of adult and continuing education programs has created motivation for collaboration with organizations whose primary purpose may not be education. By developing partnership relationships, these organizations can more effectively design programs to foster
transfer of learning from programs to practice. How not-for-profit organizations collaborate to develop and present adult and continuing education programs is the unifying theme in this book. It also provides guidance for those in adult and continuing education and related areas who must work with other organizations. In a sense, it is both a road map on what factors to examine as collaborative arrangements are considered and a guide developed from practice-based data. This text is intended
for those professionals working in the areas of education, local government, parks and recreation, health care, economic development agencies, and social service agencies. It may also be used as required reading material for undergraduate and graduate courses that prepare professionals for practice.
"Any programmer who is involved in a collaborative partnership or contemplating such a programming direction would benefit from reading this publication. It will also be a valuable addition to the reading list for undergraduates and graduate courses that look at the current realities of planning adult education programs." -- Bruce Hobin, University of Saskatchewan, Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, Vol. 25, No. 2, Fall
