Adult learners account for approximately 35% of students enrolled in higher education, and that percentage is expected to grow. This issue of The Toolbox explores the unique learning needs of these students in higher education. Dr. Brad Garner also provides postsecondary educators with useful tips for designing courses to benefit both these nontraditional students and their younger classmates.
