The Adult Learner
Some Things We Know



January 2004 | 112 pages | Corwin
The Adult Learner: Some Things We Know addresses the 'warrior' who rises to the challenge of teaching the adult learner. The discussion is designed as a catalyst for dialogue about the adult learner and to uncover the complexities of teaching this rare and riveting species.This book is organized around three interlocking themes: some things we know about the adult learner; some things we know about change; and some things we know about professional development. In the process of reading the book, the reader gets a glimpse into the research that supports the theory of the adult learner, into the principles that guide the learning practices of the adult learner, and into the strategies that 'work in the work setting' for the adult learner.
