In the pedagogic model. pedagogy embodies teacher-focused education. More accurately.
Major differences exist between what we know of the great teachers' styles. not passive reception.Moving from Pedagogy to Andragogy … • The great teachers of ancient times. it is surprising that teacher-focused learning later came to dominate formal education… . from Confucius to Plato. didn't pursue such authoritarian techniques. Considering this. yet they all saw learning as a process of active inquiry.
Moving from Pedagogy to Andragogy … • Whether or not this is the best model for child education. it is clearly inadequate for adult learning. particularly when it comes to work or career-related learning within the process of human resource development. HRD requires a more active approach from the learner which takes account of individual experience. .
Malcolm Knowles. Knowles asserted that adults require certain conditions to learn. . in 1973. He borrowed the term andragogy (and-rè-go´jê) to define and explain the conditions. Building on the earlier work of Lindeman.Moving from Pedagogy to Andragogy … • In an attempt to formulate a comprehensive adult learning theory. published the book The Adult Learner: A Neglected Species.

" has taken on a broader meaning since Knowles' first edition.Moving from Pedagogy to Andragogy … • Andragogy. . The term currently defines an alternative to pedagogy and refers to learner-focused education for people of all ages. initially defined as "the art and science of helping adults learn.
. Postponing or suppressing this move will slow our ability to learn new technology and gain competitive advantage. the implications of a move from teacher-centered to learnercentered education are staggering.Moving from Pedagogy to Andragogy … • In the information age.
• The Accelerated Learning Method is based on that research. • We each have a preferred learning style — a way of learning that suits us best. you learn more naturally. If you know and use the techniques that match your preferred way of learning.Accelerated Learning • More has been discovered about how the human brain works in the last 25 years than in all history to date. .
Accelerated Learning • We now know that we do not have a fixed single IQ. And those differences help account for your personal learning style. • The secret is this: When the way you are taught closely matches the way you like to learn. . results improve significantly and the time you take to learn is reduced. but a range of at least seven or eight different forms of intelligence.
