    The college, as the premier institution for adult learning within SUNY and across the nation:
    • supports learners as active partners in their education;
    • transcends the boundaries of time, place and ways of learning;
    • integrates and engages learners with their past, present and future creative and intellectual lives;
    • creates and supports cooperative initiatives among all segments of the population to foster respect, civility and a welcoming environment; and
    • supports the social, cultural and economic development and
    sustainability of both its learners and their communities.

  • 4. The Adult Service eLearner
    According to Malcolm Knowles:
    The five assumptions underlying andragogy describe the adult learner as someone who
    has an independent self-concept and who can direct his or her own learning,
    has accumulated a reservoir of life experiences that is a rich resource for learning,
    has learning needs closely related to changing social roles,
    is problem-centered and interested in immediate application of knowledge, and
    is motivated to learn by internal rather than external factors.
    (Merriam, S.B., 2001, p.5)
    Merriam, S.B. (2001) Andragogy and Self-Directed Learning, New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. No.89 Jossey-Bass, A Publishing Unit of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Retrieved April 24, 2010 from: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.113.3925&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    in the league.
  • 6. The Adult Service eLearner
    “Students say they are motivated by solving real-world problems. They often express a preference for doing rather than listening.
    At the same time most educators consider learning-by- doing the most effective way to learn.” (Lombardi, 2007, p.2)
  • 7. The Adult Service eLearner
    An ESC student and Johnstown, NY resident, applied her knowledge from her history and public history courses to her work as a volunteer for the preservation of the Stanton family home and museum in her community.
    Other course work supports her leadership in conducting community educational events and fund raising for the historical preservation volunteer organizations she belongs to.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton, spokesperson for the rights of women, was born in Johnstown, NY on November 12, 1815.
    “The strongest reason for giving woman all the opportunities for higher education, for the full development of her faculties …emancipation from all forms of bondage, of custom, dependence, superstition; from all the crippling influences of fear, is the
    …solitude and personal responsibility of her own individual life…
    "Solitude of Self," Address Delivered by Mrs. Stanton before the Committee of the Judiciary of the United States Congress, Monday, January 18, 1892. Votes for Women, 1848-1921
  • 8. The Adult Service eLearner
    “In the student-centric paradigm, students increasingly become independent, self directed learners who master higher-level critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative skills.
    Students learn at their own pace, repeating material to reinforce learning, or delving into additional material to enrich it.”
    (Intel, 2009, p.3, Figure 2.)
  • 9. Web 2.0 and Social Media

  • 10. Web 2.0 and Social Media
    “One of the most salient features of online learning is that it allows learning to be place and time independent”
    (Vrasidas and Mclsaac, 2000 from Merriam, S.B., 2001,)
    “Best practice builds diverse communities of inquiry across disciplinary and geographical boundaries.”
    (Donnelli-Sallee, E., & Dailey-Hebert, A., 2008, p.125)

  • 19. Reflection and Assessment
    “service-eLearning courses must be anchored by integrated outcomes and must include assessment measures that gauge discipline based and transferable skills and competencies.
    Multiple avenues for individual and communal reflection allow participants to construct new knowledge”
    (Donnelli-Sallee, E., & Dailey-Hebert, A., 2008, p.126).
  • 20. Reflection and Assessment
    Reflective Learning:
    • Student understands the concept and purpose.
    • 21. Directions are clear and time given for reflection is sufficient.
    • 22. Allow for private and shared journaling using discussion boards, drop boxes, blogs, Google Wave, Google Docs etc.
    • 23. Create media presentation for uploading to students’ ePortfolioor “personal learning environment”.
    Anita Brown
