Adult Learning and Teaching

I have learned that adults learn differently than students. There are books and courses about adult learning theory. It's much more of a challenge for me to teach adults than to teach children. I tend to think a bit more like children. I bounce from one idea to another. I use a lot of story and imagery. I draw pictures. I typically can help children learn.

I find adults to be much more difficult to teach and lately I've been observing how people teach adults. I'm curious about this and will think about it more.
