Adult learning is a relatively new area of study pioneered by Malcolm Knowles, Knowles was perhaps the central figure in U.S. adult education the second half of the twentieth century. He identified the following characteristics of adult learners: Adults are autonomous and self-directed They need to be free to direct them- selves. Adult participants must be actively involved in the learning process, and their teachers must serve as facilitators for them. Speci- fically, instructors must get participants' perspectives about the topics they are to cover and let them work on projects that reflect their interests. Adults have accumu- lated a foundation of life experiences and knowledge that may include work- related activities, family responsibilities, and pre- vious education. They need to connect learning to this knowledge/experience base. Teachers should draw out participants' experience and knowledge which are rele- vant to the topic. Adults are goal-orient- ed Upon enrolling in a course, adults usually know what goal they want to attain. They appreciate an educational program that is organized and has clearly defined elements. Instruc- tors must show participants attain their goals. Adults are relevancy- oriented They must see a reason for learning some- thing. Learning has to be applicable to their work or other responsibilities to be l of value to them. Objectives must be identified for adult participants when they begin a course. Adults are practical. They may not be interested in knowledge for its own sake, but only in that which is useful to them in their work. As do all learners, adults need to be shown respect. The wealth of ex- periences that adult partici- pants bring to the classroom must be acknowledged. Adults should be treated as equals in experience and knowledge and be allowed to voice their opinions freely in the class.
