  • Adults are self-directed learners and are capable of independent learning.
  • Adult learners draw on their previous experiences of life and learning, and bring these experiences to bear on new learning.
  • Learning needs to be directly related to the developmental tasks of an adult‟s social roles and directly applicable to real-life issues.
  • Motivation factors for adult learners are deep-seated and internally derived.
