Adult Vs. Student Learners: Is There a Difference?

Have you ever considered if there is a difference in how first graders, or fifth graders, or eleventh graders learn?

Is there a difference in their learning vs. how you and your colleagues 우머나이저 learn? It turns out, the answer is definitely YES.

So, let’s take a look at how ADULTS best learn. Adults:

• are autonomous and self-directed.

• use their foundation of life experiences and knowledge.

• are goal-oriented.

• are relevancy-oriented.

• want practical, useful information.

• need to be shown respect.

Adult learners prefer single concept, single-theory learning experiences that focus heavily on the application of the concept to relevant problems.

Adults need to be able to integrate new ideas with what they already know if they are going to keep – and use – the new information.
