Hargrove, AE Pro Developer How Do We Teach Adults? Research investigating adults as learners concludes that adults learn differently than children. If that premise is true, then why do we so often teach them both in the same way? In truth, many practitioners come to adult education with little or no background in "adults as learners." Through this online course, you will look at "who is the adult learner" by looking at background statistics on "who takes the GED", learning disabilities in adults, and what brain research says about how adult learners learn best. Online activities, discussion boards and assessments will keep you engaged.
