Merriam, Caffarella, and Baumgartner (2007) identified that, while it is a personal process, learning is a process that is also shaped by the society in which one lives. What we learn, what is offered to learn, and the ways in which we are learned are determined by the nature of society at any particular point in time. According to Smith (2013), “the characteristics of college students have long-since departed from what is considered ‘traditional.’” Post-traditional students have outpaced the ‘”traditional” 18-22-year old college student demographic. Even though our demographic have change since the first colonial colleges were established in the 1700s, have our instructional techniques also changed in response to the changing market? This webinar will examine four adult learning theories [Knowles’s (1980) theory of andragogy; Tough’s (1971) theory of self-directed learning; Mezirow’s (1997) theory of transformational learning; and McClusky’s (1970) theory of margin] and identify how they can be utilized to guide how content is designed and presented in orientation, transition, and/or retention programs for post-traditional learners.
