Module A ButtonTopic A2.2: Your Student Audience



Consider how adult learners are also different from younger students, as noted by Moore & Kearsley, 2000:

  • Adults take more responsibility for their education and are more self-directed.
  • Adults draw on their personal experience and appreciate it being viewed as a valuable resource for problem solving.
  • Adults like to make decisions about what to learn, when, where and how.
  • Adults require less motivation to learn from external sources.
