 Beyond Knowles: What those conducting simulation need to know about adult learning theory


 Clinical Simulation in Nursing, 6, e7-e14.



Clapper, affiliated with the Institute for Medical Simulation and Advanced Learning and a self-described public servant, asserts that “teaching for understanding involves more than considering how the learning experience might be made more authentic†(p. 7). The goal of this article is to introduce educators to theories and concepts that teach students to be self-directed, lifelong learners. Knowles’ adult learning theory is discussed and used as a framework to explain what makes an exceptional educator. Above all, Clapper stresses that instruction should be positive and fun. Theories presented in this article include McClusky’s theory of margin, Grow’s staged approach to self-direction, Dunn and Dunn’s learning style inventory, Kolb’s experiential learning theory, Mezirow’s transformative learning theory, constructivist theory, and MacLean’s triune brain theory.
