Overview

In this book, Mark Tennant and Philip Pogson draw on the field of developmental psychology to provide new insights into the critical connections between experience and learning in all areas of adult education and training. Integrating findings from both adult developmental psychology and adult teaching and learning, the authors examine how experience generates developmental change. They look at how the relationship between the self and others changes across the life span and in turn affects the teacher-learner relationship. And they describe the processes that promote separateness, independence, interdependence, and autonomy in adult learners.
