Adults as learners by K. Patricia Cross( Book )

37 editions published between 1981 and 1994 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The literature on adult learners is reviewed, and two models of adult learning are developed. Demographic, social, and technological trends that stimulate the increasing demand for learning opportunities are examined, and the views of those who see dangers in new pressures on adults to participate in organized learning activities are considered. The research findings about the characteristics of adult learners are reviewed, and profiles of adults participating in the three common forms of adult learning (self-directed, organized instruction, and degree-credit) are developed to answer questions about who participates in adult learning. Why they participate, and why not, is addressed through a synthesis of research about motivations and deterrents to adult learning. Various motivational theories are described, and what is known about motivation through research and theory is integrated into an explanatory model of the motivation behind adult participation in learning activities. The following additional areas of research are reviewed: learning processes as a function of aging, adult stages of development, phases of the life cycle, and preferences and practices of adult learners regarding such issues as subject matter, teaching methods, and scheduling options. A conceptual framework for analyzing the interaction between learners and their environments, which considers physiological, social, and psychological dimensions, is also presented. Appendices illustrate the range of thought about lifelong learning and list agreements among scholars on the basic concepts underlying the ideal of lifelong learning. A bibliography is included. (Sw)

The challenge of structuring college curriculum to meet all of the educational needs of new students to higher education (those who would not be in college except for open admissions policies) is considered in this book. Research studies on teaching, learning, and student development form the basis for improvements in college programs outlined. Different techniques of individualized instruction are described. Programs teaching interpersonal skills are emphasized. A model college program is outlined that allows students to achieve excellence in fields suitable to their individual talents and that accommodates student differences through flexibilities in time, method, and curriculum.

The missing link : connecting adult learners to learning resources by K. Patricia Cross( Book )

7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines services that link the adult learner's interests to the learning resources of the society. Two sets of research studies are used as a background for analyzing needs and services. The first set of studies consists of thirty state and national surveys or needs assessments of "learners,""would-be," or "potential learners." The second set of studies consists of investigations into the self-directed learning activities of adults. The author attempts to integrate the findings of both sets of research. A third resource which is examined consists of more than forty sets of recommendations for program implementation. In supplying the missing link between learner interest and learning resources the author focuses on three general areas: (1) facilitating access to appropriate learning resources, a process that includes access for underserved groups and advocacy for the special needs of adult learners; (2) providing information to adult learners about available learning resources and about themselves and their strengths and weaknesses, and (3) providing counseling and referral services designed to assist learners in planning, and matching learner needs to appropriate learning resources. Appendixes contain a bibliography of recommendations for lifelong learning and a classification of recommendations by topic addressed. (Css)
The junior college student, a research description by K. Patricia Cross( Book )

5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review of research on characteristics of junior college students permits certain generalizations. Since present tests show that they score lower academically than 4-year college students (although individuals may do equally well), their special abilities and aptitudes need further study. Though they tend to come from families of low socioeconomic status, the extent of this influence is uncertain. How much is due to the parents' social-cultural values and how much to economic factors should be explored. Cost affects college attendance, alone and in combination with such factors as accessibility, motivation, source of funds, family attitudes, etc. More statistical correlations of these factors are needed. Junior college students are attracted more by the practical (low cost, proximity, job training) than by the intellectual and, as a result, have lower educational and vocational aspirations. Thus it appears that more data are needed on their knowledge of available pursuits and on what influences their decisions. It has been shown that they prefer applied curricula, are less flexible in thought and attitude, and have low self-esteem. Much more study therefore is needed on their values, self-images, and human relations. Lacking confidence in their academic ability, they frequently criticize their high school courses, perhaps because their particular nonacademic abilities are overlooked in traditional testing. Much more research must be done, especially on the adequacy of these tests for their unique qualities. (Hh)
