How Adults Learn

Learning Principles

At times in my life, I have heard that adult audiences can be difficult.  Maybe that’s true or maybe we just need to know more about how adults learn and what strategies are effective in ways of presenting the information to them. While viewing the attached PowerPoint presentation, I continuously thought about the similarities of the information shared and my own learning needs. As it was noted, adults need to be involved and participating in the learning. We do need brain breaks (and snacks do help). I also found that I am less willing to take risks, as I often did as a child. This could be  due to the adult’s fear of failure, as also stated within the presentation. To me this information is very interesting because the information could also hold true for children alike. Children also need breaks, they need hands on experiences, and they also have barriers when it comes to the learning process.
