Non-Traditional Students at UHM: Teaching Mature Adult Learners

November 9, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Online Add to Calendar

In this session, panelists will discuss what makes mature adult learners unique, challenge stereotypes of aging, and provide the audience with best teaching practices and resources for mature adult learners at UHM. Higher education is preparing to see an increasing number of mature adult learners who return to college on either a credit or non-credit basis. UHM enrollment statistics show the number of students aged 50+ who take credit courses has increased significantly. While research emphasizes the importance of lifelong learning for cognitive and physical wellbeing, research also suggests that mature adults can learn differently than younger ones.
