i have found this wikipedia source, but i am hoping someone can give me an academic source that highlights these personal characters of an adult learner.

would be most grateful if someone can come up with a result :-)

thanks Steve

Hi Steve, if you google andragogy and Knowles Theory of adult learning or anything similar, you will get academic sources. Knowles coined the term andragogy to differentiate adult learners from compulsory-aged learners.
Ok Marie,

Many thanks for your input
