I came across this a few years ago and have it set up on my Sticky Notes to display once a week, to remind me of a few things when I facilitate adult learning. Currently I do face-to-face with adults needing to use computers to get back into the work force and with ESOL learners. I feel like this is SO important to remember when working with adults in any context.
The richest resource for learning resides in adults themselves; therefore, tapping into their experiences through experiential techniques (discussions, simulations, problem-solving activities, or case methods) is beneficial (Brookfield, 1986; Knowles et al., 2005; McKeachie, 2002; Silberman & Auerbach, 1998).
