An Alternative Approach to the Andragogy/Pedagogy Issue.
Knudson, Russell S.
Lifelong Learning: The Adult Years, v3 n8 p8-10 Apr 1980
Pedagogy assumes that the education of children and adults is essentially the same. Andragogy takes the view that adults and children learn in different ways. In lieu of these polarized concepts, educators need to approach human learning as a matter of degree, not kind, recognizing the similarities as well as the differences between learning adults and learning children.
