A Different Kind of Diversity:
Adult Development in Higher Education

with Dr. Nancy Popp

This interactive presentation will explore the implications of adult development for the ways we teach and interact with our students, our colleagues, and ourselves.  The session will be broken into four parts. Built into each section will be small group work and time for discussion:

  1. Introduction/overview of Constructive-developmental Theory and the stages of adult development.
  2. Implications for teaching developmentally diverse learners.
  3. Creating an optimal “holding environment” to support learners’ growth.
  4. Implications for self-reflection and our own personal and professional growth.
