Teaching Adults provides a guide for new instructors, whether or not they are studying on their own, or as a text for a course or professional development program. The author shares ideas in a way that can be read quickly, used immediately, and can serve as a resource to revisit from time to time as readers face new challenges and questions in teaching adults. Keeping jargon to a minimum, yet grounded in ideas developed from theory, research, and practice in adult education, the book will benefit readers who have not previously been exposed to these ideas as well as more experienced teachers who seek new ways to reach adult learners.Part One introduces the framework for the rest of the book, including the Four Keys to Effective Teaching, which are explored in detail in Part Two. In Part Three, the author examines the special challenges of teaching adults, addressing such topics as creating a positive learning environment, overcoming resistance to learning, motivation, and dealing with difficult or disruptive learners. The epilogue summarizes the book and offers the author's personal views on the topic.
