Designing Instructional Articles in Online Courses for Adult Learners
Morland, D. Verne; Bivens, Herbert
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v1 n2 Dec 2004-Jan 2005
Aspiring teachers are taught the elements of "pedagogy," originally the art and science of teaching children. Many aspects of teaching adults, however, are fundamentally different than those employed in teaching children. In order to acknowledge these differences, a new word--"andragogy"--gained currency in the late 20th century. This article highlights the important principles in teaching adults and suggests teaching strategies to support these principles in online courses for higher education and corporate learning programs.
