Andragogy vs Pedagogy

Clark Quinn

Asked about why I used the word pedagogy instead of andragogy, I think it’s worth elaborating (since I already had in my reply ;) and sharing. So here’s my analysis of andragogy vs pedagogy. The post Andragogy vs Pedagogy appeared first on Learnlets.

Why lectures?

Learning with 'e's

A recent article on the BBC News website asks why lectures aren't obsolete. It seems strange that although research points to their ineffectiveness as a method of learning, lectures still figure predominantly in higher education. Some academics might argue that when faced with a large group of 150 or more students, the lecture is the only viable method. The third concerns the nature of the lecture itself.

How The 8 Effects of Arts Education Are Changing Online Pedagogy, Part 1

In the first wave the pressing challenge was to get content online (welcome to the recorded lecture) and to automate assessment (welcome to the world of quiz)! But the question arises: do the precepts of arts education hold value for contemporary online pedagogy? Digital Learning arts education online education pedagogyPhoto by Steve Huntington / Unsplash. It is completely admirable to watch the way MOOCs are evolving.

Maker pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

More and more teachers are beginning to realise that creating environments and possibilities where students make things is a very powerful pedagogy. American educator Jackie Gerstein makes some important observations about how teachers can change their perspectives and embrace maker pedagogy. Teachers often believe they should lecture, to directly instruct so they can impart important content to their students.

Learning with 'e's

In my previous post I wrote that even though research shows lectures to be less than effective in helping students to learn, they still persist in higher education. The key question is: What can replace the lecture? Therefore, although there is great temptation for lecturers to treat 200 students as a group, they should really be trying to reach each individual student, and engage them in learning at the deepest possible level.

Narrative pedagogy 2: Maintaining the suspense

Learning with 'e's

this short series on what I will call 'narrative pedagogy'* I want to explore some of the storytelling techniques that can be adapted for use in education. I inform my students that I'm going to tell them a deliberate lie at some point during my lecture. They listen more attentively during the lecture to see if they can detect the falsehood. Except of course for the red herring - that I promised I would tell a lie at some point in the lecture.

In this sense, the pedagogy is constructivist. In this sense, the pedagogy is connectivist. But that’s not to say that the pedagogy of an ILE can’t be instructivist either.
