Rationale

I chose this page due to its credible focus on adult learning programs within private companies. Dr. Billington’s research exposes seven critical key factors for adult students to experience mid-life growth.

The key point – that “significant learning and personal growth are inseparable” – motivates me to become the best possible teacher.  I will refer to this site often to ensure I carefully consider each of the following seven factors in my planning and teaching:

  • safety and support
  • intellectual freedom
  • students treated as peers
  • self-direction
  • intellectual challenge
  • active involvement
  • regular feedback.
