Andragogy: Process and Context Based (PCB) Model for Adult Learners

Jiban Khadka


The literature reports that andragogy is methods of teaching for adult learning that basically differs from pedagogy in terms of learning, focus, power and control, learning, learning design, development. The andragogical models focus on the process rather than content, and the process concerns with how the procedures and resources help the learners. However, they have focused less on the role of environment (context) in the implementation of the models where the context includes several factors such as enabling, empowering and engaging. This paper has described a blended model that might be implied in higher education institutions. The proposed model called Process and Context based (PCB) model for adult learners, includes both process and context. Experience, action and reflections are the primary elements of the process whereas enabling, engaging and empowering are the components of a conducive environment for a learning organization.
