Improving outcomes for adult learners
Mason, Russell D. (2016) Improving outcomes for adult learners. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This thesis investigates the range of experiences and circumstances that shape educational outcomes for adult learners. The study uses descriptive meta-synthesis to examine the complex interaction of psychological, socio-demographic and environmental influences that shape the attitudes and experiences of adult learners as they re-engage and persist through their tertiary education. The importance of conducting the synthesis lies in the possible benefits of applying the findings of the study to better support adult learners as they persist and succeed in their educational pursuits.
