Today, I am a guest-blogger on ASTD’s Higher Education community of practice blog, and I invite you to mosey over there to engage in a conversation about how we make adult learning theory practical. Here’s the link to my post, From Theory to Practice.
You don’t have to be a professor to comment – I’d love to hear from formal and informal students of adult learning as well. How has learning about theory improved your practice?
While you’re at the ASTD site, I invite you to take a quick tour. Just a few weeks ago, ASTD transitioned their web content to a new format, and established a variety of communities that they hope will be more effective at serving the needs of the various constituencies within ASTD. One or more of the communities may be of interest to you. While I’m still learning my way around, I think the new web site makes it much easier to find the material and links that are useful.
As one of the largest professional organizations for training and development practitioners, ASTD provides a lot of useful content and inspiring conferences for our field. I hope to continue to contribute to the blog-based conversations among folks in the higher ed community. As well, I am working on sharing research insights in T+D magazine.
More to come!
