Abstract:

Learning styles can be defined as the cognitive, effective and psychosocial behaviours that can serve as relatively stable indicators of how learners perceive, interact with and respond to a learning environment. Learning styles are just one part of Adult education theory, how do the theories around Androgogy, Transformation learning, Experiential learning and programme development affect those offering education in the world of breastfeeding. In this session, we will explore what we have to understand about how adults learn in order to be able to communicate effectively. We will also explore ways to empower people to understand breastfeeding and their role in advocating for women and babies.
