Item description for Developing Adult Learners: Strategies for Teachers and Trainers by Kathleen Taylor, Catherine Marienau & Morris Fiddler...

Overview
This engaging and accessible book offers adult educators a set of instructional strategies that actively foster adult development while helping adult learners become aware of how learning affects their growth. Developing Adult Learners gives adult educators the framework they need to use their skills to engage learners not only in the task at hand, but in the conscious exploration of how the learning process enriches their ultimate potential. The authors reveal the connections between experience, learning, and development in the lives of adult learners and offer educators new insights into learners' processes of thinking and knowing. An indispensable guide for those who work with adults whose continuing development rests on their ability to learn from experience, Developing Adult Learners will enable educators to become not just instructors in a particular subject matter, but conscious human developers.

Publishers Description
2001 Winner of the Phillip E. Frandson Award for Literature in Continuing Education"An absolutely indispensable trove of practical, concrete ideas for teaching and training adults. Enough theorizing and mythologizing! This is the real stuff!"
--Laurent A. Parks Daloz, associate director, the Whidbey Institute, and author of Mentor: Guiding the Journey of Adult Learners

"This book gives us educators and trainers of adults a solid framework for intentionally incorporating into our practice what we believe to be a central tenet of what we do--help learners develop and change."
--Rosemary S. Caffarella, professor, Division of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, University of Northern Colorado, and coauthor of Learning in Adulthood: A Comprehensive Guide

Today's adult educators recognize that it is no longer sufficient for teachers to teach and trainers to train. This practical guide shows how to encourage learning and development while helping adult learners to become more aware of their personal growth and change. It not only offers a rationale for focusing on the experience and development of adult learners, but also presents a theoretical and conceptual framework of the intentions that guide educators.

The authors provide nearly seventy instructional activities--some of which can be done in a single session and others that can be done in a series of sessions or an entire course. These flexible activities are organized according to their focus on a particular learning strategy. No matter the content or setting, readers can select any activity and customize it to suit their developmental and instructional objectives. Most important, Developing Adult Learners highlights the compelling voices of teachers and students who have discovered the excitement of growing and changing through learning. It is full of pragmatic advice for faculty members, part-time instructors, workplace educators, leadership trainers, and anyone dedicated to helping adult learners achieve rich and rewarding experiences.

From The Book Jacket
Today's adult educators recognize that it is no longer sufficient for teachers to teach and trainers to train. Rather than focus on information acquisition or behavior modification, they have expanded their efforts to emphasize the process of learning and its impact on adult development. This thoughtful and practical guide shows how to encourage learning and development while helping adult learners to become more aware of their personal growth and change.The authors first offer a rationale for concentrating on the experience and development of adult learners. They then present a conceptual and theoretical framework of the intentions and choices that guide educators who teach or train with development in mind. Drawing from this framework, they provide nearly seventy instructional activities—some of which can be completed in a single session and others that can be done in a series of sessions or an entire course. These flexible activities are also organized according to their focus on a particular learning strategy: assessing, collaborating, experimenting, imagining, inquiring, performing/simulating, and reflecting. No matter the content or setting, readers can select any activity and customize it to suit their developmental and instructional objectives.Most important, Developing Adult Learners highlights the powerful and compelling voices of teachers and students who have discovered the excitement of growing and changing through learning. It is full of pragmatic advice for faculty members, part-time instructors, workplace educators, leadership trainers, and virtually anyone dedicated to helping adult learners achieve rich and rewarding experiences.
