      • Make the appropriate adjustments to ensure outcomes are driving your learning plans and materials
      • Do not unnecessarily make changes to the new materials until you have used them!
    • Remember: Adult learners tend to be or perceive themselves as:
    • Autonomous and self-directed
    • Accumulated life experience and knowledge
    • Goal-oriented
    • Relevancy-oriented
    • Practical
    Continue to build a strong, compassionate, and relevant rapport with your students Stay on Track…
  • Principles of Adult Learning
    • Understanding the Adult Learner:
    • Social Relationships – meet others who are alike
    • External expectations – comply with expectations from a formal authority (boss, licensing board, etc.)
    • Social Welfare – serve the community – big picture
    • Personal Advancement – higher status on the job
    • Escape – relieve boredom
    • Cognitive Interest – embrace “lifelong learning”
  • The Learning Model – what is meaningful for your students?
    • Faculty Engagement – be a motivating presence
    • Student Collaboration – all for sharing of viewpoints and experience
    • Active Learning – application, reflection, connection
    • Frequent and Prompt Feedback – expectations, comments on performance and grades – appropriate value for time input
    • Time on Task – stage complicated assignments, be reasonable
    • High Expectations – challenge and motivate without crushing their desire to learn
    • Respect for Diversity – includes learning styles – take students as them come and take them to where you want them to go
  • HUMBLE WARRIOR
