Term Definition

Andragogy in the WikiPedia means that learning: "consists of learning strategies focused on adults. It is often interpreted as the process of engaging adult learners with the structure of learning experience." Structure of learning means "how do I, an adult, most like to learn a given type of material? It implies the adult has self-knowledge about: "How did I learn {some similar subject I liked} in the past? It is self-knowledge about one's own learning processes, personal learning preferences, and learning styles. "Andragogy" also refers to less rigidly structured and more self-paced, learner-directed, learning activities and the learning materials which facilitate this type of learning.
