"It feels so good inside!" Non-academic outcomes, barriers and success factors (2011)

This presentation from the NWT Literacy Council follows up on research into non-academic outcomes in Adult Literacy and Basic Education (ALBE).

The authors note that non-academic outcomes are an important part of ALBE. For instance, adult learners report increased self-confidence; more independence; and an increased ability to handle challenges like personal problems.

At the same time, the authors note that adult learners face situational, attitudinal, academic and institutional barriers, including competing responsibilities; financial worries; lack of confidence; and negative experiences with the education system in the past.

To help adult learners succeed both academically and personally, they suggest eliminating situational barriers; fostering relationships; recognizing learner strengths; and embedding learning in practical, realistic contexts.
