Adult Learners more pdf

This program begins by outlining ways adults differ from children as students; how their acquired knowledge and experience makes them more critical judges of materials and instructors; how adults want to be partners, not just pupils with the instructor; and why adults can be defensive and fearful in training programs. After setting up these problems, we will offer techniques for addressing these concerns when planning an adult training session.


  • Recognize the needs of adult audiences and develop a distinct approach that works for you and your participants.
  • Identify the benefits that learning present to adults.
  • Learn how to minimize pressures of success and performance anxiety that inhibit adult learners.
  • Foster a tension-free atmosphere for adults to share their expectations, values, previous experience, professional priorities, and expertise.
  • Create a partnership with adult learners, acknowledging importance of contributions and sharing of information.
  • Translate what you learn into action.
