When working with learners, Dr. Lazo believes that instructors must be especially attentive to the learners’ backgrounds. Each learner has his or her own reasons why they are there. In most cases, these learners have significant responsibilities outside of school. These responsibilities, which typically include family and established careers, must be considered and held in high regard by the instructor.
