Some Considerations on Andragogy.
Rehder, N. William
This paper indicates some of the varied facets of knowledge on adult education that were found in readings on this subject over the past few years, and specifically in the last six months. The emphasis on andragogy (the teaching of adults) focuses on the future adult students of Canada. Eight chapters examine such topics as: I. Definitions and Generalizations; II. The Changing Aims of Adult Education; III. The Canadian Adult Educand; IV. Student Orientation; V. Project Orientation; VI. Teacher Orientation; VII. Technological Orientation; and VIII. Possible Futures in Adult Education. The paper concludes that Canada must decide that the potential contribution to the community of the adult who has improved himself or herself is as great as the individual gain, and thereby accept the necessity of investing publicly in adult education. A bibliography of 94 items is included. (Author/LS)
