Adult learners in theological studies engage teaching and learning environments best when their academic work is perceived to be relevant to their pastoral vocation, so they match the profile of other adult learners who want those in control of their academic formation to provide on-demand information transfer and just-in-time application methods. Because Catholic theological institutions and seminaries are primarily geared toward community formation and global education models, there is an increasing mismatch between the perceived needs of older students and the comprehensive education package of the institution. One way to resolve this is to provide ongoing and continuous education programs that address student needs through the databasing of short, 60-second, always-available, asynchronous audio/video interpretations that show promise for strengthening distributive learning initiatives in theological institutions by addressing the merger of acoustic and visual learning styles.
