The Adult Learner

ET & L

The mission of the Effective Teaching and Learning Department is to equip Baker College faculty in creating environments that will enhance student learning.


Malcolm Knowles is credited with first developing the adult learning theory. 
L. Dee Fink, MaryEllen Weimer, Phyllis Blumberg, and Steven Brookfield are also notable in the domain of creating significant learning for adults. 
How People Learn, edited by Bransford, et al, is a terrific resource as well.
