Ubuntu worldview: a traditional African view of adult learning in the workplace

Nafukho, Frederick

Abstract:
In traditional African society, adult learning was viewed as holistic learning for life and work and formed the foundation of many African societies. It was used as a process of breaking down barriers and of combating social exclusion. With the current transitions taking place in Africa, less emphasis is being placed on adult learning. The issue of how adults learn in different societies and the philosophy that guides the adult-learning process in the workplace is an important theme for adult education and human resource development scholars and practitioners. This article seeks to bridge the existing gap in terms of the contribution of the African ubuntuism paradigm to adult learning in the workplace.
