When teaching and learning are characterized by collaboration, challenge, support, risk taking, and reflectivity, they become a transactional process. This
book provides a practical guide for those involved in helping adults learn to critically examine, question, and rethink the teaching and learning encounter. The authors detail the descriptive elements, skills, and guiding principles of the transactional, what it means to ground teaching in learning, how to individualize teaching and learning, and how to foster critical reflection. The book provides specific advice on adult learning methods and techniques most appropriate for facilitating the
adult learning transactional process, how technology can be interactive and collaborative, numerous approaches for evaluating teaching and learning, and various strategies for improving instruction and resources for one's own professional development.
