Andragogy--A Mantra for US/Iraqi Cross-Cultural Dialogue
Mahdi, Ghada S.; Bright, Larry K.
Journal of Adult Education, v39 n1 p18-25 2010
Andragogical precepts provide rich opportunities for building cultural bridges, particularly among people in times of strife. Encouraging adults to share their experiences and insights in a learning community of unconditional positive regard can build understanding, hope, and peace among people experiencing conflict and marginalization. An accepting adult learning environment can offer political moderates a new mantra for understanding the Middle East and the West during the current global conflict. As an Iraqi from war-torn Baghdad and an American from the US Midwest, the two writers advocate for engagement of adults in addressing the realities and alternative visions of people.
