Defining the learning context

In alignment with the 2021 TLC Spring Seminar Series, before creating a cohesive and welcoming environment, the first step is understanding your students’ learning needs. For example, who are they, what do they already know, and what motivates them?   

To learn more about the implications of understanding your students’ needs, explore these two scientific articles that discuss the principles of adult learning theory and provide practical solutions which can positively impact student learning.

Cooper, A. Z., & Richards, J. B. (2017). Lectures for adult learners: Breaking old habits in graduate medical education. The American Journal of Medicine, 130(3), 376–381.

Sogunro, O. A. (2014). Motivating factors for adult learners in higher education. International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 4(1), 22–37.
