Abstract : Adult learning embraces andragogy constructivism Transformative Learning Theory praxis and the understanding that not all adults are prepared initially for complete learning autonomy. The concept of andragogy can be traced to the Nineteenth Century and the volume of follow-on research has reinforced the basic tenants of adult learning. It is therefore valid to expect that adherence to adult learning will indicate one measure of the effectiveness of curricula that target adults. This thesis therefore analyzes the Center for Naval Leadership Facilitator Training course and the Center for Naval Leadership Learning Site Coronado Advanced Officer Leadership Training Course curricula for adherence to the adult learning model. The curricula follow adult learning practices to a great extent within the parameters of the military environment and limited resources.
