Training and the Needs of Adult Learners - 1 views

shared by Roger Harrison on 22 Apr 13 - Cached
  • Adults want to know why they need to learn something before undertaking learning
    • Roger Harrison
      This is something I need to think about a bit more when I design materials
  • The Learners' Self-Concept
    • Roger Harrison
      not sure that I agree with this
  • Facilitators should create environments where

      but I agree this needs to be facilitated

  • therefore, tapping into their experiences through experiential techniques (discussions, simulations, problem-solving activities, or case methods) is beneficial
  • They want to learn what will help them perform tasks or deal with problems they confront in everyday situations and those presented in the context of application to real-life
  • Andragogy urges teachers to base curricula on the learner's experiences and interests
  • richest resources for learning reside in adult learners themselves; therefore, emphasis in
    • Roger Harrison
      this is very important especially from an online learning perspective which perhaps provides a range of opportunities and technologies to help facilitate this, but perhaps it is important to encourage the adult learners to bring those technologies to the course rather than the other way round
  • Discussion is the prototypic teaching method for active learning
    • Roger Harrison
      so this could be facilitated in online tutorial groups and if they are run regularly each which someone allocated to take the notes and provide a summary of the tutorial and then others can feed into that summary etc.

Constructivism | Learning Theories - 0 views

  • People actively construct or create their own subjective representations of objective reality
  • learning is an active, contextualized process of constructing knowledge rather than acquiring it
  • Knowledge is constructed based on personal experiences and hypotheses of the environment.

      I think this process of constructing new knowledge based on what one already knows is often true - much of this probably happens in the unconscious. Though also at times I think people do just accept something.

Behaviorism | Learning Theories - 0 views

    • Roger Harrison
      I don't think learners are 'passive' responding to environmental stimuli. Some of the time they are, but not all of the time.
  • behavior is shaped through positive reinforcement or negative reinforcement.
  • behaviorist work was done with animals

      I really see Behaviourism clearly with my dog. I give a command, he does the behaviour and gets the immediate reward, so learns that doing command = treat
  • acceptance of mediating structures, the role of emotions,

Cognitivism | Learning Theories - 0 views

    • Roger Harrison
      So moves away from Behaviorism which considers external stimuli, and starts to look at what is going on in the mind to start with.
  • Mental processes such as thinking, memory, knowing, and problem-solving need to be explored
  • A response to behaviorism, people are not “programmed animals” that merely respond to environmental stimuli; people are rational beings that require active participation in order to learn, and whose actions are a consequence of thinking

      this distinction is important - sees learners as having abilities to think and not just react/respond

Humanism | Learning Theories - 0 views

    • Roger Harrison
      that our students tend to only respond to discussion boards when they are assessed, suggests a stronger impact of Behaviourism here rather than humanism
  • Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow
  • humanism, learning is student centered and personalized, and the educator’s role is that of a facilitator
