Role of the adult learner:In this learning segment, we will explore the Peter Jarvis Learning Process Theory in which the whole person is engaged in assimilating and understanding information. When adults learn, they learn as a “whole person” in which the five senses (sound, smell, sight, taste, and touch) are part of the person’s learning process. Adults have a wealth of knowledge, with experience, and bring a history including present and future connections all of which contributes to the learning process. All of this helps us understand the “whys” of life including expected and unexpected situations. Once we understand why something is the way it is, weare able to make sense of life situations and decide whether or not it is beneficial for us.
Carter has died and Edward is speaking at his funeral---learned through experience or life altering situation.
Role of the EducatorExploring the role of experience in learning has a long history. We as educators continue to study or research the connections between adult learning and experience, and how to assistadults in both formal and informal setting so to capture the richness of learning from adult experiences (p. 185).Learning is about the continuing process of making sense of our everyday experiences (p. 425)Page 144-145 textOur concerns areHelp adults make sense of their daily lives.Link explanations and illustrations to adults previous or prior reservoir of knowledgeLink learning activities to adult learner’s current experiencesBe creative—create activities such as games, simulations, role-plays, etc. to help learnersmake critical reflection of assumptions

Jarvis Learning Process “is the combination of processes where the whole person experiences social situations, in which the content is transformed and integrated into the individuals biography resulting in a changed or more experienced person.” 11
Who influenced Jarvis Learning Process Model? David Kolbs Experiential Learning Theory Learning entails four elements: Concrete experience Observation and reflection Formation of abstract concepts Testing in new situation 12
Jarvis’s Learning Process Model Built on foundation from Kolbs theory. Begins with adult life experience or life situation. Links the whole person. – mind, body, self, and life history Causes a disjuncture between persons biography and the experience. 14
How does Jarvis Model relates to adult learners? Affects person positively or negatively . Person learns new meaning of the world and events. Person has changed, become more experienced, more able to cope with life situations or problems. 21
Role of the EducatorHelp adults make sense of daily life.Link explanations and illustrations.Link activities to experiences.Be creative. 22
Summary Adult learning begins with an experience. Learner senses have been transformed. Learner advances to the next stage of lifelong learners. 23
