Adult Learning Theory

The CAI approach to training and capacity-building is firmly grounded in adult learning theory. This theory guides all of our capacity building services including needs assessments, training and technical assistance, determining the ways in which to provide our services and establishing the goals and objectives for learning and skills development. We use a variety of interactive and experiential learning activities to motivate and engage the learner, help contextualize and align the learning to the learner's reality, help participants retain what they learn through application and practice, and support the implementation of new skills and knowledge to the workplace. All of our capacity-building services reflect our commitment to a participant-centered model of learning.
