International Developments in Research on Extended Education
The purpose of this edited volume is to provide an overview of what extended education looks like across multiple nations around the world. Different models, policies, methods, and research findings will be discussed from an international perspective. Extended education is done differently around the world and the purpose of the volume is to understand and appreciate these differences with as much of an open mind as possible. By attempting to understand, compare, and (where appropriate) integrate these different practices as they occur in their social, cultural, and historical context, the editors hope to offer the reader a broader point of view on extended education and a critical perspective on their own society’s practices and policies.
- Extended Education as an Emerging Research Field
- Theoretical Perspectives
- Methods in Research on Extended Education

- Extended Education: Terminology, Typology, Transformation
This edited volume has been published by Prof. Dr. Sang Hoon Bae, Prof. Dr. Joseph L. Mahoney, Prof. Dr. Sabine Maschke, and Prof. Dr. Ludwig Stecher (Eds.). Read more about it here.
