Teaching Techniques in Adult Education.
Stephens, Michael D., Ed.; Roderick, Gordon W., Ed.
The teaching of adults often presents different problems and demands from those facing teachers in primary or secondary schools. The contributions in this book provide a general text to aid and stimulate anyone teaching adults or in any way concerned with vocational or non-vocational adult education. The chapters, all compiled by experts in their field, deal with specific teaching methods such as those on "The Use of the Talk in Adult Classes" or on "Tuition by Corresponsence"; or they concentrate on allied fields such as "Adult Learning,""Syllabus Design and Lesson Preparation" and"Teaching Aids," which both supplement and highlight the chapters on teaching methods. The methods at present used in the teaching of adults are fully described and assessed. The volume will prove a useful handbook both for the new teacher in the field of adult education and for those with more experience. (Author)
