Adult Education and Adult Learning Analysis

- It is my conviction that the noble profession of instructing teachers is the greatest, most powerful contributor to nation building. Teachers, within the school system, have the responsibility of imparting knowledge, acting as agents of socialization, creating responsible, productive members of society and guiding students towards the achievement of their goals. It is, therefore, important that great emphasis be placed on training teachers, since in education teachers are viewed as significant contributors to the quality of students produced....   [tags: Andragogy, adult instructor, school system]

Foundations of Adult Education

- AEIT 101: Foundations of Adult Education In order to build any solid structure, a good foundation is required. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a foundation is “an underlying base or support, especially the whole substructure of a building, a body or ground upon which something is built” (www.m-w.com). Foundations must be durable to support the structure that is built above. For this reason, the Foundations of Adult Education course delves into various philosophical approaches to adult education and learning....   [tags: Adult Education]

Adult Educators Must Understand the Adult Learner

- Adult Educators From ancient times to Post modern times learning has been the most rivaled dialogue. Education has been a historical perspective and the underlying theme for individual and social evolution. Education in its broadest since (i.e. formal, informal, social, cultural, philosophical, teaching, training and instructing) is a course of action by which we transmit its accumulated values, skills and knowledge. Philosophical debate on the formulation of knowledge still exists today. Grundspenskis (2007) insists personal knowledge is the process that an individual needs to carry out in order to gather, classify, store, search and retrieve knowledge in his/her daily activities....   [tags: adult Education, teachers, teacing]

My Life As An Adult

- Late into the night, snow fell as if it hadn’t yet realized the implications of hitting the ground. It seemed to float with no purpose or plan beyond the present moment. Stupid, ignorant snow. If only it knew of the change that will take place in a few short seconds, when it becomes suffocated by the bare ground. As I stare out at the wonderful indifference, I am reminded that my change is close, as well. The time is 11:57. Three minutes until midnight. Until I begin my life as an “adult”. Terror and anticipation battle within me and I contemplate how different life will be....   [tags: Adult, Adulthood, Debut albums, Adult development]

What Are Essential Qualities Of An Adult?

- When I see the question "what are the essential qualities of an adult?". Many ideal qualities such as fortitude, responsibility, empathy, and integrity pop up in my mind. However, not everybody will become one of those people who carry these "ideal qualities". There are many factors that will affect a person when they change from an adolescent to an adult. People may have different views on what it means to be an "adult" due to different cultural backgrounds and daily life influences. Nevertheless, in my opinion, the qualities that are essential in order for someone to qualify as an adult include financial stability, marriage, and mental maturity....   [tags: Family, Marriage, Adult, Husband]

Interview With an Adult Learner

- In my interview I had the pleasure of conversing with an individual that was not only an adult learner but now also operates as an adjunct professor for adult learners at a university. Some might not realize the parallels of adult learners and yet still there are vast differences that impact both. It was refreshing to find an individual that was able to succeed as a professional, a student and most recently a professor at the same time. My goal is to introduce you my amazing interviewee and paint a vivid picture of his journey, his growth and through his challenges along the way....   [tags: Adult Learner Interview Paper]

Characteristics of Adult Learning

- The saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”, could be a bad assumption about adult learning. Learning new trades or skills should be a live long process for all adults. The idea of learning from Marcia Connor‘s perspective, on How Adults Learn, states “we learn from everything the mind perceives (at any age). Our brains build and strengthen neural pathways no matter where we are, no matter what the subject or the context” (Connor pg. 2). Andragogy, the theory of adult learning, has become a widely studied subject by educational psychologists....   [tags: adult Education, teaching]

Andragogy: Adult Learning Theory

- First Subtopic: The History and Conceptualization of Andragogy Edward Lindeman is thought by many to be the founder of contemporary adult education. His work in the area of adult education included the writing of articles, books, public presentations, assistance in the collegiate system as a lecturer of social work and as an associate pastor in the church (Brookfield 1986). Lindeman and Martha Anderson traveled to observe and analyze the German Folk High School system and the worker’s movement. Consequently, Lindeman and Anderson’s comparative research lead to the breakthrough of the German perception of andragogy....   [tags: Theory of Adult Learning ]

Becoming An Adult As Young Adulthood

- Valon Deliu Becoming an adult, also known as young adulthood, is a very crucial stage in one’s life. This is the climax of physical and health processes. This is the point in life when we make plans of our futures. It is the time when we think of what life will be like as an adult and make plans for the future.

Engaging the Adult Learner

- Another method that can be used is the Conference method. The Conference method requires a larger group of people to be fully effective. When using this method the teacher/facilitator will start the discussion with a leading question and let the students take charge from there. Although the teacher will not completely be in charge he/she will still try to keep the discussion on track and controlled. The students will focus on a specific topic, and everyone should be engaging with their personnel experiences, ideas, and opinions....   [tags: adult learning, instruction]
