Introduction to Adult Learning

Here we will begin learning ideas about how to teach and train adults. 

Teaching Adults 

What does it mean to teach something? We all know how to learn and we all know how to teach, it is an inherent process of being a human being. However in an organized learning situation it is helpful to reflect on how we want to teach something and how we can support the participants to learn something, particularly when teaching or training adults.

We will also consider questions such as: What makes adult education a special kind of education? How do adults learn? How do adults learn best?
