Concepts, Research Results and Archives
This book is a unique approach in relating mutually international and comparative research from scholars on program planning for adults. Program planning is about needs, finding topics, making offers and bundling different contents. It makes organizations of adult education visible and contributes to their existence and is therefore a core activity of the professionals in adult education. The volume originates from an international conference hosted by Leibniz-University Hannover, which was organized by a plural expert group with key actors at Humboldt-University Berlin and the German Institute for Adult Education. The authors demonstrate the unique research method program analysis and present archives which offer an established infrastructure for heterogeneous research questions.

Programs, Program Research, Program-planning Activities – Rhizome-like Developments
Abstract: The differentiation of the adult/further education market and its expansion and changes has so far been studied but in a limited way. There are quite stable public institutions which are co-financed by law (e.g. adult education centers). In addition, special financial flows in companies and within certain political contexts have developed. However, these ad hoc additional forms of financing are all based on different themes and program priorities. Therefore, program research is of particular importance in mapping out the adult/further education landscape. The theoretical works of Deleuze & Guattari help describe the current developments. For at least a decade now, program research has included certain differentiations which are presented below.
