Dialogue and Adult Learning.
Tarule, Jill Mattuck
Liberal Education, v78 n4 p12-19 Sep-Oct 1992
Discussion of the role of language and dialogue in adult learning looks at dialogue as epistemology and at talk as learning. It is proposed that the challenge in teaching and retaining adult learners is to create dialogue-rich classrooms, including many external speech opportunities, small-group discussion, and group projects.
