Characteristics of Adult Learners

Malcolm Knowles, Rosemary Caffarella, Jack Mezirow, Sharan Merriam, Laura  Bierema and even Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow are interconnected with their approach to education principles. Knowles’ characteristics of an adult learner are explored on this website.

This website is currant; most websites state four characteristics identified by Knowles but this website has added the fifth characteristic!  Malcolm Knowles adds an intrinsic characteristic of the adult learner!

This website is thorough as it takes the reader on a professional literary experience in the life of Malcolm Knowles and includes a reference list for further learning.

Enjoy the writings of andragogy!
