Active methods in adult learning


Adult learners are equal to trainers in the learning process, bringing their own personal stories, experiences and expectations to any activity or training session.  The trainer should be aware that his/her role is not so much to provide relevant knowledge but to free the learners’ mind from the current thinking patterns and show them new possibilities. The role of a trainer is to give opportunities to adult participants to learn by acting and experiencing.
