Adult learning


1. Your boss is very impressed with the commitment, dedication, drive, excitement and energy you've displayed in pursuing the DHRD training. He has thus invited you to speak and share your story at a luncheaon talk for your colleagues. He hopes that your being sucha good role model will rub off on them so that despite family, community and work commitments, they will unhesitatingly sign up for and successfully complete similar programs.
You are flattered of course, and feel driven to live up to you boss' high praise. AS you plan your talk, you decide to use Chain-of-Response (COR) model as the main framework for your talk. You further realise you may have to bring in other models, where applicable, as well as other aspects of why some adults participate and some dont.
This is how your talk goes.............

  1. Hmmm Clever ploy!
    Seems to me you would like this community to answer some assignment questions you have for college or some other study…. good try !

  2. Adults – participation and non-participation
    I may have the wrong end of the stick as you haven’t asked a direct question, but have you considered the relevance of adult learning characteristics in your presentation? For example:

    Adults are relevancy-oriented. They must see a reason for learning something. Learning has to be applicable to their work or other responsibilities to be valued by them. Therefore, instructors must …..

    Adults need to be shown respect/feel respected. Instructors must …..

    Adults relate new knowledge and information to previously learned information and experiences. Instructors must …..

    Presumably you would want to indicate that training provision meets the needs of adult learners and results in ensuring that “they will unhesitatingly sign up for and successfully complete similar programs.” Otherwise they will not want to participate.


    If this is for an assignment then good luck!
