Discipline of Adult Education

The Discipline of Adult Education is part of the School of Education, University of KwaZulu-Natal. It is based on the Golf Road campus in Scottsville, Pietermaritzburg.

The primary focus of the discipline has been on adult basic education, community education and development, and continuing education, including non-formal and formal courses, research, policy development, and the development of materials to support adult learning. Recent years have seen an expansion and consolidation of the formal courses offered by the discipline through the school.

Although the Learn with Echo newspaper is no longer in production, the discipline still houses the book stocks of the New Readers Publishers, and runs non-formal education initiatives and seminars through the Paulo Freire project.
