Appling Andragogy Theory in Photoshop Training Programs
Alajlan, Abdulrahman Saad
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n25 p150-154 2015
Andragogy is a strategy for teaching adults that can be applied to Photoshop training. Photoshop workshops are frequented by adult learners, and thus andragogical models for instruction would be extremely helpful for prospective trainers looking to improve their classroom designs. Adult learners are much different than child learners, given the fact that adult learners tend to be much more intrinsically motivated to be in classrooms than children are. Adult learners are typically taking on instruction because it is conducive towards progress in some goal, whereas child learners are in classrooms because of mandates. This study will cover the six assumptions of andragogy and how they can be applied towards a successful Photoshop workshop. The goal of this study is to encourage future Photoshop trainers to begin incorporating andragogical principles in their classroom instruction.
