8 Elements for Facilitating Adult Learning

The goal of all professional development programs is to provide opportunities for professionals to learn core competencies that add value and increase productivity and effectiveness. Most of the adult learning that occurs in the business world falls under what is called non-formal setting. But learning can still be delivered in structured formats, such as classroom lecture and seminar, as well as self-directed, peer driven, and on-line, all of which are strategies of a model based on explicit knowledge transfer. One constant that the research continues to support is the value, need, and importance of traditional, foundational training that has a structure and set of predetermined objectives. 8 Elements for Facilitating Adult Learning is Volume 2b of Howatt HR Consulting's Talent Management Series that promotes strategic considerations for developing effective structured and planned professional programs. Volume 2b explores core considerations for adult learning design and delivery. Each of the eight sections is designed to assist human resources professionals and development managers to facilitate discussion on what they are doing and may need to improve to effectively develop human capital. This text is a core resource for the Howatt HR 4-Day Adult Learning Train-the-Trainer course for preparing professionals to design and deliver professional development materials. William A. Howatt, PhD, EdD, Post Doc Behavioral Science UCLA School of Medicine, is CEO of Howatt HR Consulting Inc., a strategic human resources management company. Howatt HR Consulting focuses on assisting companies to gain a significant competitive edge by minimizing risk to talent equity. This is accomplished through defining, designing, and developing talent management solutions for removing potential talent equity risks and to filling gaps.

Evidence Based Practices to Reduce Falls and Fall Related Injuries Among Older Adults

Falls and fall-related injuries among older adults have emerged as serious global health concerns, which place a burden on individuals, their families, and greater society. As fall incidence rates increase alongside our globally aging population, fall-related mortality, hospitalizations, and costs are reaching never seen before heights. Because falls occur in clinical and community settings, additional efforts are needed to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that cause falls among older adults; effective strategies to reduce fall-related risk; and the role of various professionals in interventions and efforts to prevent falls (e.g., nurses, physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, health educators, social workers, economists, policy makers). As such, this Research Topic sought articles that described interventions at the clinical, community, and/or policy level to prevent falls and related risk factors. Preference was given to articles related to multi-factorial, evidence-based interventions in clinical (e.g., hospitals, long-term care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, residential facilities) and community (e.g., senior centers, recreation facilities, faith-based organizations) settings. However, articles related to public health indicators and social determinants related to falls were also included based on their direct implications for evidence-based interventions and best practices.
