Welcome to Adult Learning @ VCU wikiEdit

Welcome to Adult Learning @ VCU wiki home page. This wiki was created by VCU graduate students as a space for exploring a new way to capture and make permanent our social interactions as we tackle academic challenges in our lives.  Each of us brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the learning environment; this wiki is a medium for weaving that diverse, human resource into the formal learning process.  A social learning environment thrives on diversity and challenges us to work that much harder to find our voice.  (Editing is needed here).

To that end, we welcome all adult learning professionals to this discourse.  The adult learning wiki needs open-minded participants who are willing to take risks, share their ideas, and provide honest feedback to others. (Need content/editing here).

Please take time to create a profile page to introduce yourself to the adult learning wiki community.  Let us know your educational philosophy, your background, your goals. Read about other participants, create a page, write an article, and always pose questions!  The social inter-action on this wiki provides us an opportunity to learn more about ourselves, discover hidden assumptions and biases, and take our praxis to a new level. (This area needs help).
