As educators one would expect that teachers and teacher/administrators should be experts on the best most effective and efficient methods of getting large groups of children to 

understand, learn, and use information responsibly to create more information. Theoretically, these educators have an understanding of pedagogy and methodology in order to accomplish these goals. I firmly believe most educators have these very skills to accomplish this with kids.

A question that haunts me however, at almost any education conference that I attend is: Why are so many (not all) of these educators, who are so skilled in a classroom of kids, so bad at teaching in a room full of adults for professional development?


According to an article, “Adult Learning Theory and Principles” from The Clinical Educator’s Resource Kit, Malcolm Knowles, an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”.

Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as:

  • Adults are internally motivated and self-directed
  • Adults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiences
  • Adults are goal oriented
  • Adults are relevancy oriented
  • Adults are practical
  • Adult learners like to be respected

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, April 13, 2015 5:57 PM

This article raises an important question. Why do many educators struggle with engagement and metacognition when presenting to peers? As I read the article, I had my own question. Could we be so pumped to share knowledge that we forget that engagement matters or is it that we really fail to apply the strategies we know and love with our colleagues? I have no answers but I invite reflection and comments

Critical thinking skills are what we want our students to develop. Without these skills we can not guarantee a sound and effective education that will enable our kids to seamlessly blend in tomorrow 's job market. Therefore, it is our responsibility as teachers and educators to fully understand the components of this set of skills in order to better focus on them in our instruction.
