From the classroom to the workplace, lifelong learners face a complex set of challenges.

In an increasingly tech-centered world, how can educators engage adult students and provide them with the practical and soft skills necessary to succeed in school and throughout their careers?

SRI Senior Research Social Scientist Louise Yarnall joins host Kori Hamilton Biagas to discuss the innovative, research-backed strategies being used to promote learning and skill development in postsecondary classrooms across the U.S.

Yarnall shares recent findings from the Postsecondary Teaching with Technology Collaborative, which has partnered with broad-access colleges and universities to test interventions and supports focused on student engagement, motivation, self-regulated learning skills, and more.

She also discusses her own experience as a lifelong learner, and how educators can leverage research and technology to support diverse student populations in any classroom setting.
