Andragogy: Because „Adult Education“ Is Not Beneficial To The Academic Identity!, Jost Reischmann

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

In many countries of the world a new educational (sub)discipline dealing with the learning and education of adults came into existence in the last decades.

Andragogy has received various mixed reviews in the past. Some have analyzed it from a positive perspective.

Lifelong And Lifewide Learning - A Perspective, Jost Reischmann Jan 2014

Lifelong And Lifewide Learning - A Perspective, Jost Reischmann

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

This paper complements the concept of “lifelong learning” with the concept of “lifewide learning”. “Lifewide learning” is understood as the every day happening continuous life process of adults, which builds and changes personalities, caused not only by formal and self-directed intentional learning, but also by unintentional, but nevertheless important and effective learning. It is argued that the learning of adults - in contrast to traditional children school learning - is typically based on many situations and sources merged and mixed “widely” into concrete life. By focusing on this type of learning this chapter seeks to broaden the understanding of learning and asks ...

This will not be an exact history of the events and philosophy ...
