Kuipers, Judith L.
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n129 p63-73 Spr 2011
Adult professionals are continuing their learning over the lifespan entering graduate school in their thirties, forties, fifties, and, even sixties. Knowledge is the new economic currency today and the increasing rate at which new knowledge is generated in the global world requires continuous learning. The author describes Fielding Graduate University's unique scholar-practitioner, distributed learning model, which is intended for adult students whose professional and personal backgrounds are considered an integral part of their educational and development process.
