'It is an engaging text, which could be of value to a wide
audience. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to
my own mature students who were interested in understanding their
learning more fully, or indeed to my colleagues teaching mature
students' - ESCalate This is an inspirational and highly practical
book for students returning to study. Liz Hoult provides an
easy-to-read and reassuring guide to learning. Why is it that some
people are able to do what seems so enormously difficult and
possibly illogical and to succeed so spectacularly? What is it that
these learners are able to do that others find so difficult?

learn and the ways in which different abilities and experiences can
be used to learn more effectively. The book is written from a
teacher's viewpoint and is based on the author's experiences during
a long career of working with adult students. Key features of this
text include: - nine chapters each dealing with a different aspect
of learning - models and concepts of learning developed and adapted
from a range of sources from the disciplines of education and
psychology - notes at the end of each chapter including inspiration
and suggestions for taking your understanding of the issues further
- suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter -
individual self-assessment exercises to help you gain a detailed
understanding of your own particular strengths and weaknesses as
well as your own motivation for starting and staying the course
