Administrators Focus on Needs of Adult Learners

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning recently shared with Education Dive the need for higher ed institutions to more effectively address the unique learning styles of older, non-traditional students.

A spokesperson for the council said via email that some institutions are serving adult populations well with services like weekend and accelerated degree programs and online offerings, but smaller private and state schools still tend to be behind in approaching these groups, which value flexibility and convenience.
