Abstract

Bowman and Plourde assert that teens and young adults with intellectual disabilities could be effectively helped by best andragogical practices coupled with developing facilitator/learner strong, close relationships.

Savicevic declares research techniques in andragogy need to also include theoretical ground – spiritual values, aims of education, and conceptions of the adult person. Risley discovered that the scholarship and practice of one andragogue regarding the 11 elements of trust were andragogically congruent – an almost perfect match. Freund in a time of a weak economy identified quality andragogical instruction was helping improve 19 auto repair technology programs and thus their graduates' contributions to the economic market.

Introduction

This chapter begins with Bowman and Plourde (2012) asserting that teens and young adults with intellectual disabilities could be effectively helped by best andragogical practices coupled with developing facilitator/learner strong, close relationships. Risley and Petroff (2012) gave expression to their experience of dealing with a very rigid teacher who was suspicious and non-trusting of the students by having them sit in every other seat and making up a different test for each student, Thus, the students decided to take responsibility for implementing their andragogical approach to fulfilling the requirements of a doctoral research course in statistics by meeting/studying together between class sessions. The doctoral students detected on the teacher’s part, that she was going to provide a psychological climate that lacked mutual respect, collaboration, mutual trust, support, openness, authenticity, pleasure, fun, and humanness. Although the teacher did this throughout the course, the doctoral students trusted themselves and each other and learned statistics. Talbott (2012) addressed andragogical application in texting-based learning – what she called the next technology advancement in higher education because of its accessibility to underserved students. Savicevic (2012) declares research techniques in andragogy need to also include theoretical ground – spiritual values, aims of education and conceptions of the adult person. Risley (2012) discovered that the scholarship and practice of one andragogue regarding the 11 elements of trust, were andragogically congruent – an almost perfect match. Reischmann (2013) asserted that from a practical standpoint, ‘Life-wide learning’, ‘learning en passant’, and ‘compositional learning’ may be used to imply ‘adult education. However, this kind of curriculum is built with four competencies. They are: Teaching, planning/organizing, counseling/consulting, and research. Freund (2013) in a time of a weak economy, identified quality andragogical instruction was helping improve 19 auto repair technology programs, thus their graduates’ contributions to the economic market. Beard (2014) found Lindenwood University flourished as founder Mary Sibley used the Bennis (1984) leaders’ strategy for taking charge.
