The ultimate how-to book of adult education, Adult Learning Basics goes beyond the theory and actually translates it into practice! For example, rather than the repeated discussion of adult learning theory, there is a chapter entitled “Leveraging Adult Learner Differences.” Additional chapters address training, coaching and mentoring, and the promotion of lifelong learning. Although Adult Learning Basics is not written specifically for a nursing audience, this is a book about education that translates well into the nursing world.
