Building adult learner advantage is generally considered a “net good” for both individuals and society. Many endeavors in teaching and learning strive to increase learner capabilities, resilience, and knowledge / skills, through access to learning resources, information-sharing, experiential learning, repeated test-taking, pre-learning modules (for more formal learning sequence preparedness), tutoring, and other approaches. This edited work explores a range of methods for building adult learning advantage in various contexts based on formal, informal, and nonformal learning contexts.
The objectives of this proposed text are the following:
• Introduce new strategies and tactics for creating adult learner advantage
• Capture methods used to create and maintain adult learner advantage in a variety of learning contexts
• Capture creative uses of technologies to create and maintain adult learner advantage
• Define various dimensionalities of learning advantage in adult learners
