Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the characteristics of adult learners, specifically the internal schemas and unique dynamics adult learners bring to classroom environments. We focus on the dual roles of teachers and learners as co-constructors of learning experiences. We conclude with a pragmatic example of how to teach researchers to understand their motivations for learning and how to engage in co-collaborative qualitative inquiry.
