Help Center / What are principles of adult education?

Principles of adult education are learning theories and teaching concepts which specifically address the ways adults are motivated to learn and are most effectively taught.

These principles may include specific methodologies or approaches (e.g. “project-based learning,” or “self-directed learning”), or may be demonstrated by integrating specific concepts (e.g. teaching methods and subject matter that address how the learning will help the learner, or construction of learner objectives that are task-oriented).
