Learning Communities in Education explores the theory and practice of learning communities from an international perspective. Covering primary/elementary, secondary and tertiary levels in a variety of educational contexts, leading researchers discuss:
* theoretical issues and debate
* processes and strategies for creating learning communities
* learning communities in action
The current experience of the learning community is examined with reference to case studies from England, Ireland, Canada, the USA and Australia. With comprehensive coverage of this much-debated topic and a careful balance between theoretical analysis and case-study material, Learning Communities in Education will be a valuable addition to the literature in this field.
