View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Providing comprehensive coverage of adult learning theory, this edition reflects the latest work and advances in the field. Readers learn how to develop meaningful learning programmes and use new techniques for effectively teaching adults. After examining the various theories of learning, it is easy to see why teaching adults is so different from teaching children. There are 13 appendices (100 pages) which give an overview of brain dominance technology and whole-brain thinking. There is also a self-diagnostic tool (ready to be photocopied) for determining the competency of trainers, guidelines for learning contracts, and ideas on how to switch from being a teacher to being a "facilitator of learning".
