  • TeachingadultsBy FabioMenesesTeachingpractice V
  • I choose this population because: They are motivated to learn They are very responsible and engaged with the learning process In most of the cases they want to learn more than fulfill a requirement (e.g. getting a job, traveling, etc)
  • According to Malcolm Knowlesadults learn best when:1. They understand why something is important to know or do.Most of the adults are in theclassroom because they want tolearn something new.
  • 2. They have the freedom to learn in their own way.Adults have their learning style:Visual (“show me”)Auditory (“tell me)Kinesthetic (“let me do it”)
  • 3. Learning is experientialActivities that involved students(getting up and moving about)and keep them energized.Honoring the life experiences.
  • 4. The time is right for them to learn.“When the student is ready, the teacher appears”. Buddhist proverbStudents are in the classroom because they want to be.
  • 5. The process is positive and encouraging.The job of a teacher of adult students includes being positive and encouraging with their students but not condescending.
