    What are some general thoughts on how humans learn? What are some of the reasons why adults might want to participate in general education?

    Addressing your first question, humans learn from the three learning domains: Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor. Each of these learning domains has levels of attainment as demonstrated in Blooms Taxonomy. The Cognitive Leaning Domain has six levels, the upper three is where critical thinking, or High Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) occurs. The teacher challenges the student through questions; using certain words as thought cues. For more information on this, you might consider my article from the BrainMass Library: Critical Thinking and the Cognitive Learning Domain-W. T. Wilkes, Sr., Ph.D.
    The following are some references for you to check on the Cognitive Leaning domain and Blooms Taxonomy:
