In her landmark book Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach, celebrated adult educator Jane Vella outlined twelve principles of Dialogue Education, an approach to learning as a holistic, integrated, spiritual, and energetic process. Since the book was first published, her learning principles have been used in a wide variety of adult learning settings, in different countries and with different educational purposes, clearly demonstrating that these principles can be used successfully with any type of adult learner, anywhere.
Dialogue Education at Work is the companion book to Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach. This is the first book to show how educators worldwide have used Vella's methods to transform their classrooms and organizations into vital places of learning. Written for adult educators, staff developers, leaders of community service organizations, volunteer coordinators, and vocational trainers, Dialogue Education at Work is filled with illustrative case studies from a broad range of organizations that show how to put Vella's principles into action.

Transform Your Organization with the Power of Dialogue Education
"Vella’s new book is a marvelous kaleidoscope of diverse evidence and rich testimony of realities that have been modified by the power of dialogic education. We recently incorporated this approach at the Educational Centre for Clinical Tutors. Right now it is a must for our clinical faculties at the Medical School."
–Joaquin Montero, chairman, Internal Medicine Department, P. Universidad Catolica de Chile
"Dialogue education is at the heart of Freedom from Hunger’s Credit with Education strategy. We have been fortunate to see the power of dialogue to transform mere information sharing into action for change in the groups of women with whom we work. As an organization we have also experienced profound change in our approach to designing technical assistance, internal meetings, and consultations as a result of our use of the approaches described in this book. Dialogue education is transformative."
–Christopher Dunford, president, Freedom from Hunger
"This book provides truly remarkable insight on high-performance, student-centered learning. Readers of this book will certainly find not only practical applications of these principles, but also compelling reasons to adopt them in their own approach to teaching."
–Paul H. Jacques, assistant professor, Western Carolina University
