The opportunity for a second chance is a growing phenomenon. Some members of the Adult Learners Consulting Group, a dozen or so faculty and graduate students at the University of Dakota, who have a general interest in the related processes of learning and teaching, investigated the specific concern about the ways older-than-average students learn and the instructional methods most appropriate for them. They recognized that for both the older student and the teacher of the older student there are problems and issues that are different from the average student or student/teacher relationship. In addition to presenting an integrated picture of adult learners on campus, this book also provides some teaching techniques that can be used in the classroom tomorrow.; It is aimed at teachers in further and adult education, trainers in all disciplines, researchers in adult and continuing education.
