1. Recommended Starting Points

ERIC and Education Research Complete have substantial coverage of adult, career and vocational education in a variety of educational settings. Both have materials by and for educators on theories, applications, and techniques. 

2. Adult Education / Adult Learners in Specific Contexts

Discover how learning theories are applied in a variety of education and training programs. Include the name of a theorist or a theory in your search.

3. Cognitive and Psychological Aspects

4. Multidisciplinary Databases

The following three databases cover many different subjects, but none in great depth. Very good for retrieving materials from other disciplines.
