Week 9

We learned this week about the ways that the brain functions in adulthood and how it affects learning. The idea of cognitive styles (or learning styles) is important, because it says that the adults can exhibit different ways of processing information for the purpose of learning. Global learners, for example, may process multiples streams of information and topics at once, while analytical learners need a much more focused and intentional approach. Given this concept, what are some ways that you could vary the ways that information is presented in a classroom? What are some strategies for addressing the different needs of adult students in a classroom? What are some challenges?
