"Do the Thing You Think You Cannot Do": The Imperative to Be an Adult Learner in Order to Be a More Effective Adult Educator
MacLennan, Janet
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v48 n2 p385-398 Jul 2008
Despite the fact that we are learning more and more about the particular challenges and possibilities of teaching adult learners, we may still be overlooking--or forgetting--some of the most fundamental aspects of what makes an effective educator of adults. This paper addresses this oversight by reminding adult educators of the imperative of being adult learners to gain continuous new insights into their craft. The reader is taken on the author's own journey of realising and enacting this imperative.
