Learning is a lifelong activity. Without realizing it, adults continually learn throughout their lives in an informal way. However as the population ages, and the nature of jobs and work change, educators need to address the perceived barriers faced by many adult learners in more formal situations. This program introduces the key principles of adult learning, including learning styles and some specific difficulties faced by older individuals. By understanding the barriers adult learners face, facilitators can help unlock potential advantages, decrease barriers to adult learning, and take advantage of the methods available to best engage and support adults in their ongoing education.

In general the first half of the book focuses on broader questions and principles taken from psychology per se, and the second half focuses on somewhat more practical issues of teaching.
