EDUC 7011 - How Adults Learn: Theory and Research♦


(6 sem. cr.) Working effectively with learners in any postsecondary setting, from traditional college classrooms to workplace training, requires a sound understanding of how adults learn. In this course, candidates examine key concepts in adult learning theory, focusing on developmental theory and the wide range of research that supports it. Candidates explore adult learning theories from andragogy to transformation, including phase and stage developmental theories, and they examine effects of gender and culture on adult learning. They also have the opportunity to reflect on the relationship of this material to their own learning or teaching experiences.
