Abstract


The purpose of this study has been the exploration of the impact of Self-Directed Learning on adult learners' Life Satisfaction using their attitudes, willingness and perception as intervening variables. It examines ways in which adults learners' perceptions, attitudes and willingness match with the level of happiness and satisfaction that they contribute to their survival. Through deductively hypothesizing the research ideas, analyzing the data and specifying patterns, the study employs a sample of 100 college and university level students from 5 institutions of higher learning. A self-administered survey questionnaire was implemented and scores of the participants' observation were statistically recorded and analyzed. The prediction of Life Satisfaction from Self-Directed Learning with the three subscales using linear regression analysis yielded statistically significant result of R2 = 0.293 (variation); F=48.42(model strength); and p < 0.01(significance). The result suggest that, any positive changes in learning that are focusing on Self-Directed Learning and life-long perspective have the potential to show the way to improved life satisfaction of adult learners. The result will also allow for structures of intervention that indirectly influence perceived satisfaction through activities that encourage engagement, thus improving quality life
