President and CEO of OnLine Training

Dr. Terrence R. Redding, PhD.
Dr. Terrence R. Redding, Ph.D.

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.

For the past ten years he has been involved in an on going series of research projects associated with the development of high self-directed learning readiness. 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".

He held his first insurance license in 1974 and was again licensed 1989 through 1992 as part of his responsibilities at the Oklahoma Research Center for Continuing Professional and Higher Education. More recently Terry has been 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 OnLine Training Institute.
