Adult Learning Theory: Creating Learning Experiences with Impact

Monday, November 6, 2017 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Facilitator: Dr. Lisa Bevington

In this workshop, we will briefly explore adult learning theory principles and the influence of cognitive learning theory and neuroscience on how we can better facilitate adult learning. We will discuss a number of powerful methods you can use in designing learning experiences that can increase students’ interaction, motivation, and retention.

The participants should be able to:

  • articulate the six characteristics of adult learning.
  • identify the five participatory processes that facilitate adult learning.
  • discover ways to improve their current way of facilitating learning.

Why do you want to attend the January Lunch & Learn SIG meeting?


Because…  You will learn principles that work from the best-selling book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team.

Because… A cohesive team will:

  • ·         Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
  • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
  • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
  • ·         Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
  • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
  • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”


Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.
