This subject explores the learning theories which underpin teaching and learning within adult and vocational education training practice. The emphasis is on understanding that learning theories help teachers reflect on their practice and incorporate relevant aspects of the theories into their teaching in order to improve students' learning experiences. Key individual and developmental theories of learning are presented and discussed with regard to how these theories are embedded in our understanding of learning and 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.
