How Does Experimental Learning Increase Skills and Knowledge Acquisition and Retention in the Non-Traditional Adult Learner?
Anticol, David
Adult Higher Education Alliance, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Adult Higher Education Alliance (43rd, Orlando, FL, Mar 7-8, 2019)
In today's educational and workforce settings, the desire is for students to not only have "book knowledge" but also the ability to implement that knowledge into skills and abilities. Those desires are often met with decreasing time and money in order to help foster those knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA). Experimental Learning is a critical learning step to bridge that gap. In high-stakes settings, like healthcare and military education, where non-traditional learners are often found, experimental learning can help build the confidence and KSAs, ensuring skills and knowledge acquisition and retention in non-traditional adult learners. Experimental learning is an avenue to ensure non-traditional adult learners are able to put into practice knowledge learned to develop sound and critical skills and abilities.
