Dr. Redding has been designing and teaching adult education courses since 1968. Terry is a past W. K. Kellogg Fellow and has a doctoral degree in Adult and Higher Education. He has a Masters in the Psychology of Education and is an honors graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. His research has dealt with adult motivation theory and the origins of self-directed learning readiness. He has specialized in cognitive learning models and is the co-developer of the Honeycutt Redding Cognitive Task Analysis Model.
Since 1989 he has been involved in an on going series of research projects associated with the development of high self-directed learning readiness. It is Terry's belief that in our rapidly changing world from time to time situations will occur which will threaten the very existence of humanity. No one can know from where the genius will come which will permit humankind to confront and defeat such extinction level events. Nor can we know what form the threat will take. Nor can we know from where the threat will come. We only know that it is a certainty that in the future such threats will confront mankind. Thus Terry considers it an imperative that we set about educating all of humankind, fostering growth of the human spirit, and our ability to understand and manage our environment. Of great significance is the finding that children between ages 8 and 15, who become high self-directed learners, typically share a common childhood experience. Redding has labeled this experience "the first moment of lasting excitement." High self-directed learners who share this common experience can remember some event that has captured their imagination for life. Typically these individuals find their life long learning endeavors in some way tied to this "first moment of lasting excitement."
Dr. Redding studied and conducted research in the area of continuing professional education at the Oklahoma Research Center for Continuing Professional and Higher Education. Later, as a consultant he developed a three volume set for the US Army allowing them to prioritize the selection and funding of strategic technologies which will be required in the 21st century.
More recently Terry was the Director of Corporate Training and Corporate Computer Training at Palm Beach Atlantic College. He is the author of numerous referred chapters dealing with adult learning theory. He is the founder of OLT Research Institute.
