Adult Educators and the female learner
I realize this is an old post, but know that in some cultures or with many who are now adults classroom learning was very different. I think that educators should address expectations with students in the very beginning and tell them what type of interaction you expect and how to participate. I had some Adult ESL students present last week on their experiences in their home country including their experiences in education. One of our students from the Middle East explained how she was taught to keep her head down and remain quiet. In contrast, in her class with us, we require her to listen AND speak. She said she has learned to speak even if what she is saying is not perfect and to ask questions to further her learning.
