Pedagogy Vs. Andragogy

Pedagogy Vs. Andragogy

21 Oct 2018 – Pedagogy versus Andragogy? As mouthful as those two words may be, teaching effectiveness has been a deep concern in the current education system and within the many levels of education itself. 


The topic for today brought light on the variation between the two forms of teaching. 


While pedagogy refers more broadly to the theory and practice of education, and how this influences the growth of learners, Andragogy refers to methods and principles used in adult education. Primarily, between pedagogy and andragogy, the former is believed to be more suited for young learners while the latter, for adults, and they are basically characterized as the leadership and teaching methods. 


The effectiveness of teaching in andragogy is achieved through innovation, creativity, experiential, mentoring and modeling - a vastly more independent form of teaching as compared to that of a younger learner. 


The insights to this interesting talk was presented by Mr. Fakir Mohamed bin Omardin to the academic staff.
