    schema:description "The fields of psychology of aging and adult development have considered cognitive topics, such as concerns of work and retirement, and issues related to coping and bereavement. Meanwhile, the field of adult learning considers applied perspective topics. This book focuses on the dovetailing of adult development and learning. Although the field of lifespan human development began officially only fifty years ago in the U.S., a groundswell of research has been conducted in the last two decades. The fields of psychology of aging and adult development have considered cognitive topics, such as concerns of work and retirement, and issues related to coping and bereavement. Meanwhile, the field of adult learning has progressed largely independently, considering with an applied perspective topics, such as adult workplace learning, literacy development, cognitive strategies and teaching applications. Portions of these streams of conceptualisation and research imply a relationship between adult development and learning in adulthood; however, there is not one published book that has as its explicit focus the dovetailing of adult development and learning. "Handbook of Adult Development and Learning" will be the definitive work in this dual area." ;
