The Three-Part Harmony of Adult Learning, Critical Thinking, and Decision-Making
Moore, Kyle
Journal of Adult Education, v39 n1 p1-10 2010
Adult learning, critical thinking, and decision-making are fields that receive attention individually, although they are interspersed with elements of each other's theories and philosophies. In addressing adult learning precepts, it is essential to include critical thinking and decision-making. One without the other creates weakness; all must be present if learning is to be effective and rewarding. This composition provides subject matter expert definitions of adult learning, critical thinking, and decision-making and then identifies the related elements. The piece also accentuates how those responsible for teaching adults must facilitate the union of adult learning, critical thinking, and decision-making.
