Abstract : The microworld of adult education and training diffuses and maintains a psychological misinterpretation by subsuming the process of learning under the practice of training. On the basis of international literature, we seek to confirm this “learning priority” in the understanding and improvement of adult education. The article starts with a short recall of definitions, then presents the assumption that a “fundamental teaching error” operates in the current and, sometimes, expert, views of adult training. Through an outline of the main learning paradigms that flow through the adult learning literature, we then mention how these theories help renovate our visions of learning and development theory, beyond the short-lived effects of technological and/or pedagogical vogues. The question of intervention will be finally outlined before we conclude with a proposal for a renewed conceptual framework for adult education.
