Organizing Principles for Program Design Based on Adult Development and Learning Interests. Revised.
Greenberg, Elinor
The paper presents some of the organizing principles that have emerged in the process of designing higher education programs for adults. The analysis relies on some of the recent research and literature on adult development, life stages, and learning interests. The organizing principles were not predetermined, but have resulted from years of experience in designing and implementing baccalaureate degree programs for adults in the University Without Walls program of Loretto Heights College in Colorado. The report is anecdotal, with little statistical data or research analysis presented. (MSE)
