Abstract

As the face of higher education continues to change, instructors must develop effective strategies and innovative pedagogical techniques to engage an increasingly diverse set of learners. Specifically, instruction should provide opportunities for connection between disparate concepts as well as between disparate learners. How can teachers effectively leverage the unique qualities and experiences of non-traditional students to enhance adult learning and increase the value of the classroom experience for all students? This chapter offers instructors a unique perspective not only on the cognitive processes of non-traditional students but also research-based personality and behavioral assessments, transforming them into innovative pedagogical tools with immediate practical application. By understanding the strengths that adult learners bring to the classroom as well as the cognitive processes that support learning and skills acquisition, instructors can devise teaching strategies that enhance the learning and development of all students within their classroom.
