Much of the theorisation regarding radical adult education in Australia has concentrated on activists’ pedagogy in the context of critical learning. Learning in social action is largely seen as taking place informally. Learning is tacit and implied and not always identified or articulated as knowledge or learning. This thesis expands and builds on the existing scholarship pertaining to informal learning in radical adult education to account for holistic and embodied ways of knowing.
