Knowles’ Adult Learning Theory or Theory of Andragogy is particularly important when designing trainings for working professionals. The theory proposes five assumptions of adult learners: self-concept, experience, readiness to learn, orientation to learning, and motivation to learn.
From the bullet point list below, select one topic for which you will lead the discussion in the forum this week. Early in the week, reserve your selected topic by posting your response (reservation post) to the Discussion Area, identifying your topic in the subject line. Be specific about your topic so that someone else could select the same bullet point but focus their post differently. By the due date assigned research your topic and start a scholarly conversation as you respond with your initial or primary post to your own reservation post in the Discussion Area. Make sure your response does not duplicate your colleagues’ responses.
- What are the similarities and differences between pedagogy and andragogy?
Additionally, provide a brief paragraph describing a course you have taken via technology-based instruction and how the course did (or did not) follow good andragogy. Assess how your learning was impacted.
As the beginning of a scholarly conversation, your initial post should be:
- Succinct—no more than 500 words.
- Provocative—use concepts and combinations of concepts from the readings to propose relationships, causes, and/or consequences that inspire others to engage (inquire, learn). In other words, take a scholarly stand.
- Supported—scholarly conversations are more than opinions. Ideas, statements, and conclusions are supported by clear research and citations from course materials as well as other credible, peer-reviewed resources.
