Chapter 2. Learning Facilitation > Principles of Adult Learning

Principles of Adult Learning

The term adult learning has two aspects: adult and learning. What do these really mean in relationship to helping adults learn?

As an adult, being self-directed becomes an important component of one’s self-concept.
