There is no single learning approach or style that works for every student.(Cetin) This paper will reflect upon my observation and participation during my field experience and demonstrate how it relates to the concepts of course material studied during this semester, “EDUC 2130, Exploring Teaching and Learning”. Field Experience Site: Lanier Technical College Wood’s Mill Adult Education Center My field experience placement during Educational Psychology was at Wood’s Mill Adult Education Center.
The development of my ideas over the course of this unit Over the course of this unit, I have managed to rethink with valuable details my own approach to understanding what an adult learner and an educator should aim for, what a well-designed course should look like and how to be on track to achieve your educational goals. At the beginning of the unit, my ideas on adult learning were mainly shaped by pure practice with little (that is insufficient) theoretical background. After the unit is finished
the most part, I have to agree with the critical theorists: learning barriers do exist. In wealthier nations, men are still more likely to earn higher salaries for the same positions as held by women. Wealthier families have the means to pay for quality educational experiences and have endless opportunities to continue educational learning opportunities. Demographic factors, such as age and sex can determine who qualifies for educational opportunities. While the government funds the education of
- Carlos Ramirez Since its development in 1994 the standards of Educational Leadership have pursued promoting an understanding on what is expected from the educational administration field.1 The goal of this paper is to present a personal appraisal of a connection between the ELCC standards and my own experiences in district leadership and a reflection on my professional practice of the standards. It is implicit that an educational leader should promote the success of every student by advocating
Motivations of learning evolve when we become older. From all the important basics of personal developing, nothing comes near the importance of learning. As a human beings we always strive to learn. Any new experience, any new information, or any passionate connection teach us something new. Every time we go someplace new, try a new food or talk with someone new, learning is happening.

I am confident that my academic and experiential exposure enable me to contribute to the ESL program at CCC in terms of enhancing ESL students’ English competence and knowledge of the Western academic culture, designing and improving ESL curricular, and collaborating with other colleagues to address teaching and research issues.

A. Behaviorism, Constructivism, and Cognitivism There are three approaches to learning that I will discuss in this section they are behaviorism, constructivism, and cognitivism. Behaviorism is a learning theory based on the idea that any behavior can be learned through conditioning as long as the conditioning is done the right way. There are two types of conditioning. The first type is classic conditioning. This type of conditioning is where a subject is provided a stimuli and based off of the
journal reflection will discuss my expectations for the course, interests in learning, and how I plan to use the course to aid in my work in the adult education field. I have several expectations for the course. In addition to learning additional information about human development, I plan to further explore learning across various stages of adulthood. From my experience, the learning experience of people in early adulthood can be very different from the experiences of people in middle adulthood.
“Adult Learning Theory” Tessa N. Dillon Ohio Christian University 9/23/2015 When did adult learning begin to take a stance in the field of Education? Adult Learning started to be considered a professional career in the early 1920 's. The basis of the adult Learning method cannot be summed into only one Theory of how Adults Learn . We can however, note the similarities and differences of adult learning based on relevant information that compares and contrasts how individuals act
Learning Theories: Knowles versus Kolb Sara L. Olson-Howard Ohio Christian University September 10, 2016 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that there are different theories based on how an individual learns. These theories are based on individuality rather than a group as a whole. I will compare and contrast the different learning theories as previously determined by educators Malcom S. Knowles which used Andragogy and Pedagogy compared to David Kolb which uses
