Adult Development and Learning of Older Adults
Roberson, Donald N., Jr.
This summary of adult development covers a wide range of authors. Adult development is one way of understanding how the internal and external changes in our lives have an impact on learning. Of particular importance in this work are the developmental issues of older adults. I present various theories of adult development such as linear and integrated. The impact of the physical dimension of one's life is discussed. Also the writings of several authors are presented such as Erikson, Havighurst, Peck, Fisher, Baltes and Baltes, and Kleiber. Learning is often the result of the stage of life of the person.
