Adult Learning Styles, Critical Thinking and Psychology.
Leith, Karen Pezza
Courses, curriculum, and classrooms can be designed to affirm students in their adulthood, empowering them to draw on their experiences, interests, and self-motivation to learn. Starting at the introductory level and continuing through specialty courses and electives, critical thinking, learning contracts, self-directed learning, and sharing experiences and knowledge can be empowering and exciting experience for both student and professor. Examples of these methods are presented for an introduction to psychology course that is an interdisciplinary course on the meaning of life and social psychology. (SLD)
