Back to School for GrownupsBook - 2009
"Back To School For Grownups" was established in 2009 by Laura H. Gilbert, Ph.D. The book, website and materials are based on her own back-to-school experience and many years helping others do the same. Laura's passion for adult learners began when she returned to school as a single mother of four and was inspired by the life stories and perseverance of her peers. Today, having completed four back-to-school journeys, Laura is a consultant, college instructor, speaker and coach. "Back To School For Grownups" is a practical guide for adults contemplating a return to the classroom. Based on the real-world experience of travelers who have successfully taken this journey, the reader will tackle tough questions such as "Am I too old?" "What about the money?" "Am I capable?" and "Is it worth it?" You'll learn what higher education professionals notice in effective adult learners and you'll meet grownups who successfully made the journey back to school. Whether you are considering a certificate program, a Ph.D., or are completely unsure which road to take, this book includes tools to help you make good decisions each step of the way.
