Adult Learning Theories Closure
Baskas, Richard S.
A student-centered nontraditional learning program was proposed to better prepare fire department military personnel in obtaining their 911 dispatch certification at a Florida military installation. Maintaining an adequate number of dispatched qualified military personnel, in addition to current civilian dispatchers at the same location, improves the educational qualifications of the department during any emergencies. Various adult learning theories support how dispatch instructors teach their students. Research was conducted through the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) and Google Scholar website, and 13 articles were retrieved. A literature review determined their application in the subject material. Research revealed that the nontraditional learning program was supported by numerous adult theories.
