Andragogy -- Research Starters Education
By: Bartle, M. Sheila;
2008 / EBSCO
This article discusses the history and application of the theory of andragogy, a teaching theory for adult learners in which the educator's role remains meaningful but less instructive, involving coaching, facilitating, and guiding. Today the learner-centered assumptions and practices of andragogy have proven sufficiently effective to filter into many educational settings, including pedagogy, professional development, staff trainings, and service learning. Although it functions as a highly influential guide to practice, some educational theorists find that the claims of andragogy remain insufficiently verified in higher education.
