Embedding Adult Learning Theories into Learning Design


Wednesday, September 22, 2021 - 11:00 to 12:00

Overview of the topic:

What motivates an adult to learn: curiosity or a simple need to know? Educational researchers have come up with an array of answers to that question over the years. The truth is that adults are complex individuals so there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Adult learning theories provide a foundation to define and “marry” a learning need to its most appropriate solution. This webinar will highlight some of the current perspectives on learning and teaching in an adult learning context and will focus on the strategies used to put them into practice. It will specially look at how PLAY (Purposeful Learning Accentuating Yourself) can be embedded to develop dynamic and engaging learning experiences.

Key Outcomes:

  • Identify key perspectives that influence the success of adult learning
  • Explore the benefits of a learner-centred approaches
  • Discuss how adult learning can be embedded into learning design
  • Extend adult learning practice through the use of P.L.A.Y.
