During the 20th century, universities offered big adult education programmes in their local communities. Adults studied part-time, at work and in their leisure time. This work ended around the millennium. Why? What has been lost? In the light of this coronavirus emergency online programme, discuss with Professor John Holford what universities should be doing to support adult learning in their localities.
