The Best Adult Learning is Social Learning | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

Aaron Wolowiec (who’s recently launched EventGarde LLC, a brand new consulting firm for meetings and educational strategy) has an interesting post on adult learning principles and andragogy (which “places value on the process of learning. It uses approaches to learning that are problem-based and collaborative rather than didactic or rooted in lecture, and also emphasizes more equality between the instructor and the learner.”)

 

1. Adults are internally motivated and self-directed

2. Adults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiences

3. Adults are goal oriented

4. Adults are relevancy oriented

5. Adults are practical

6. Adult learners like to be respected

 

Aaron poses the question, how can you incorporate these principles when planning education, when designing your meetings, when choosing (or training) your speakers?
