Recognizing How Adults Learn: Implications for Principals.
Richardson, M. D.; Prickett, R. L.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n558 p85-89 Jan 1994
Adult learners bring a greater background of life experiences to the learning situation; may experience diminished learning rates, if not ability; and approach learning from personal or professional needs, not compulsion. Effective adult learning requires time for reflection and for application and manipulation of ideas. Principals dealing with teachers must build on adult learners' experiences.
