The subject explores the learning theories which underpin teaching and learning within adult and vocational education and training practice. The emphasis is on understanding that learning theories help teachers reflect on their practice and incorporate relevant aspects of the theories in order to improve students' learning experiences. The subject looks back at some of the individual or developmental theories of learning and how the metaphors and practices of these theories are embedded in our understanding of learning and our practice working with adult learners in post-compulsory education. Finally, the subject uses different forms of learning as a lens for shaping practice, and how this considers student needs, motivation and learning abilities by tracing these concepts back to different learning theories and educational philosophies of students and teachers.
