Reflect on your professional experiences. • Consider how a quality instructor can impact an adult learner's knowledge acquisition

Discussion 1 - Week 11 Adult Learning Perspectives As an adult learner, your education is viewed through the lens of your professional experience. John Dewey argued that experience and education have a cooperative relationship. Reflect on the insights you gain in researching a topic are weighed and measured in the context of your lived experience with the applied knowledge from your working life. For adults to completely integrate new knowledge, they must apply it, and they need to reflect about the application of new skills. At Walden, we feel that new knowledge is only truly useful to the degree that it can help resolve social change inequities. Acquiring knowledge without further contemplation or application is not really learning. So, how might you apply knowledge to help to improve the world? To prepare: • Review the Learning Resources for this week. • Reflect on your professional experiences. • Consider how a quality instructor can impact an adult learner's knowledge acquisition. • Reflect on your own insights from this course. Post three insights you gained about adult learning theory that you can apply to a problem in your work environment. Support your response with the Learning Resources and current literature. Explain how these insights may influence how you approach adult learning at work. Be sure to support your ideas by connecting them to the week’s Learning Resources, or something you have read, heard, seen, or experienced. Discussion 2 - Week 1 Learning Style Inventory As you did in Discussion 1 this week, reflect on the insights you gained during this course. Did you alter your learning style as you considered various theories and characteristics of adult learners and learning experiences? To prepare: • Review the Learning Resources for this week. • Reflect on the Learning Style Inventory you completed in Week 2. • Compare the results of your Learning Style Inventory with what you have learned in this course. Post a summary of the results of your Learning Style Inventory compared with the insights you have gained in this course. Describe the implications of the information. Be sure to support your ideas by connecting them to the week’s Learning Resources, or something you have read, heard, seen, or experienced. Attached is the Learning Inventory Resource for this discussion Merriam, S. B., Caffarella, R. S., & Baumgartner, L. M. (2007). Learning in adulthood: A comprehensive guide (3rd ed.).
