  • Explores gendered learning in different contexts 
  • Central to policies and practices of lifelong learning 
  • Advances understandings of gendering of ‘choice’
  • Provides international contexts and comparisons 
  • Presents a broad range of contributors, including academics and practitioners

This important book breaks new ground in addressing issues of gendered learning in different contexts across the (adult) life span at the start of the 21st century.  Adult learning sits within a shifting landscape of educational policy, profoundly influenced by the skills agenda, by complex funding policies, new qualifications and the widening/narrowing participation debate.  The book is unique in highlighting the centrality of gendered choices to these developments which shape  participation in and experiences of lifelong learning.  

Gendered Choices critically examines the continued expansion of a skills-based approach in areas of lifelong learning, including career decisions, professional identities and informal networks. It explores key intersections of adult learning from a gender perspective: notably  participation, workplace learning and informal pathways.

Drawing on research from a range of contexts, Gendered Choices demonstrates that for women the public/private spaces of work and home are often conflated, although the gendering of ‘choice’ has largely been ignored by policy makers.

The themes of the book bring together some of these critical issues, explored through the multiple and fractured identities which constitute gendered lives.  The book addresses these in an international context, with contributions from Canada, Spain and Iran that provide a wider international perspective on shared issues.
