Fenning, Kristine
College Quarterly, v7 n1 Win 2004
Learning is a natural process shared by its members in most social and educational institutions, and is seen as both the primary vehicle and foundation for the building and achievement of one's career and/or personal goals. This research offers critical insight into the dimensions of cohort based learning communities and the implications it presents for adult learners and learning organizations in Canada. Supported by constructivist and socio-cultural adult learning theories, cohort based learning is a valued learning option encapsulating a pedagogical approach for its adult participants. Research infers this learning venue has both merits and limitations in higher education, and concludes with the recommendation for further research concerning the advantages and disadvantages posed by such a curricular approach.
