Notes & Quotes on Adult Learning.
Dobson, John R. A.
This document is a review of literature on adult learning, assembled in a computer-printout format. It brings together brief statements made by authors on the various major aspects of individual and social (associational) learning, as well as information on planning and evaluation. The document also contains a glossary of adult education terms and a bibliography. Although the document is presented in the conventional form of a monograph, the soft-wear support system allows the data base to be continually updated by additions and deletions. The document covers the major learning theories, the teacher/facilitator's role, as well as the process of facilitation, and reflections on the management of thinking and feeling. (KC)
