Adult learners bring a lifetime of experiences, formal education, and wisdom to the classroom or to a webinar which they want to share with their peers.

Good teachers know the learners’ specific needs before educating them. Some like to say that children’s brains are like sponges. They soak up new information. Conversely, adult brains are like sieves. They filter all new information through their experiences and tie any new information to past experiences. Dr. Malcolm Knowles’s research indicates that children and adults learn differently. As such, faculty members must design educational courses that honor those differences. Adult learners are also self-directed and will only truly engage with subject matters that interest them.
