Researchers have examined the process of learning and how to best implement learning programs. Furthermore, research in the field of adult education has demonstrated that adults learn differently than young people in many ways and for many different reasons. These differences have triggered the implementation of adult learning theory in training adult professionals. This paper identifies the core principles of adult learning theory and discusses how each of these principles can affect current and future training strategies within work organizations.
