Training and Development Mid-Term Exam 1 1. Identify and briefly explain the seven principles of adult learning described in TDB. (TDB p.5-8) 1. Adult Learning is Andragogy, not Pedagogy a. Andragogy is the art and science of teaching adults and Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching children. Androgogy includes principles that designers must address when preparing learning programs for adults. 2. Adult Learners are Pressed for Time a.Adults squeeze in learning with demanding responsibilities which limits the time many adults can invest in learning. 3. Adult Learners are Goal Oriented a.Adults primarily participate in learning programs to achieve a particular goal. The goal might be work related or personal. 4. Adult Learners Bring Previous Knowledge and Experience a.Linking new material to existing knowledge and experience creates relevant learning. Sometimes new material contradicts previous knowledge so trainers must convince them to part with old approach. b. In other situations learners know all or some of the content in the training course so the design of the course needs to be assessed so familiar information is skipped. 5. Adult Learners have a Finite Capacity for Information a.Adult learners are primarily interested in the topics of the content that directly affect them, but some trainers want to cram as much information as they can. 6. Adult Learners have Different Motivation Levels a.Adults highly motivated to learn when faced with new content, but their motivation decreases as they become more familiar with the content. b. The challenge of the designers of the training programs is identifying the motivation level of learners as their experience grows, and matching the content to that level of motivation. 7. Adult Learners have Different Learning Styles a. Learning vs. doing i. Some people learn through trial and error with little supervision and debriefing. This is the do-then-learn style ii. Others want to learn everything first then perform the task. This is the learn-then-do style. b. Verbal vs. Hands-on i. Some learners are verbal and learn best by reading ii. Some learner are visual and learn best by seeing pictures iii. Some are auditory and learn best by hearing iv. Some are kinesthetic and learn best by hands on experience
