Overview

Updating her 1996 edition to include new research on brain function and the role of the learning environment, MacKeracher (University of New Brunswick) describes how adults learn. She begins with the basic assumptions about learning in general and adult learning in particular—and how individuals have preferences and experiences which may affect their learning—and then describes cycles in learning as proposed by Kolb and Taylor and theories of learning styles. Other topics include the workings of the nervous system, the mind, intelligence and cognitive development; how physical learning works in adults; the influence of relationships, spiritual issues, environment, and context on the willingness or ability of adult learners; and basic strategies and theoretical models for facilitating adult learning.
