Fulton, Rodney D.
Journal of Adult Education, v22 n1-2 insert Fall 1991-Spr 1992
This two-part article discusses the role of the physical environment in adult learning. In the first part, two activities--environment introduction and visualization--are discussed as ways to develop an awareness for improving the learning environment. In the second part, two planning activities--mapping and geometric coding--are discussed as ways to improve the learning environment. The discussions conclude that attending to the physical environment is a beneficial activity that can enhance learning. The activities can be used by adult educators to evaluate the match between learning behavior and place and to add a dimension to adult teaching methods. (KC)
