Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry

Christopher Pappas: 9 Tips To Apply Adult Learning Theory to eLearning - eLearning Industry | E-Learning Suggestions, Ideas, and Tips | Scoop.it
According to the renowned American educator, Malcolm Knowles there are 5 assumptions concerning the characteristics of adult learners, and 4 principles concerning adult learning (andragogy). Despite the fact that Knowles' adult learning theory assumptions and principles were introduced in the 1980's, each can be utilized today to help eLearning professionals create more meaningful learning experiences for adult learners.

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:09 PM

In order for adult learners to be actively involved in their own learning, they must feel (and know) that they have a voice in regards to the content and delivery of their coursework. The degree to which learners determine how a course will play out is, of course, the prerogative of the instructor, but I think instructors who actively gauge the preparedness and receptivity of their adult learners are liable to get ones who are more engaged and grateful.

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:13 PM

Scooped from Amos's Scoop.it page- Adult learning theory is very important to keep in mind when designing learning strategies for adult education. This is a very helpful resource to easily reference when designing instruction, in particular I would highlight the PURPOSE behind each module and activity and remembering that motivation is key with adult learners.

Samantha Patterson 7's curator insight, March 16, 2015 9:05 PM

This is a good article about adult learning with eLearning. It provides information about Knowles' 5 adult learning theory assumptions that can be translated to modern day eLearning experiences.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.
