This path will provide you with some of the basic theories associated with how adults learn. It should provide you with some solid foundations on which to build any learning you are creating aimed at the adult learner, particularly in this age of fast-moving data, technology and bite-sized learning!

In section 1 you will learn how adults learn differently from children and the difference between pedagogy and andragogy.

Section 2 expands on this and covers how you should design learning with the adult learner in mind with some information on how to do this.

In section 3 we look at feedback and how important effective feedback is for learning, as well as some tips on how to deliver effective feedback.

Finally, in section 4 we briefly touch on emotion and how emotion plays a part in learning.

While this learning path does not cover ALL the elements of adult learning theory, I hope it will give you a sound foundation and I hope to build on this in later learning paths.

I hope you enjoy this path!
