Give your older students time to respond when you ask a question. Encourage Your Adult Students. Students in their 50s and 60s are generally not nearly as tech savvy—or tech dependent, as some would argue—as 18 or even 30 year olds. Experiential learning experiences can take multiple forms.
Remember Student Backgrounds
With the number of non-traditional students growing, many educators have discovered that adult learners are fundamentally different than their younger counterparts in many ways. This is your challenge as a teacher of adults. Patience helps too.
