Abstract

Adult students usually bring real-world experience and learning to their academic studies. Some of this learning often includes understanding and knowledge related to activities or concepts that have economic content. Instructors in economics classes with adult students can build on this experiential learning to design learning activities that enhance adult students' engagement and understanding of economic principles and issues.
