Adult Learning, Adult Teaching. Nottingham Working Papers in Staff Development and Training.
Daines, John; Graham, Brian
This handbook is intended to provide some specific and practical suggestions for those involved in the education of adults. It is concerned with the ways that people learn as adults and with how teachers and tutors can help them learn more efficiently. The first of two main sections deals with adult learning and is concerned with the characteristics, expectations, and motives of adult learners. The second section, on preparation, planning, and teaching, deals with the whole business of helping adults learn within the context of an adult group or course. It looks at the main elements, including purposes (aims and objectives), methods (explaining, talks and lectures, demonstration, individual practice and supervision, working with groups, discussion, questions and questioning), learning resources, use of audiovisual aids, starting and finishing, evaluation (course, self, and student), policy and administration, and planning a session. Key points of each topic are highlighted in a separate "box." (YLB)
