Pedagogy vs Andragogy Organizations
Viktor Wang (Florida Atlantic University, USA) and Susan K. Dennett (Northwood University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-6046-5.ch024
Human Resource practitioners have a responsibility to ensure quality learning occurs in their organizations. Therefore, it is important when organizations consider learning in their environment; what constitutes quality learning? Should they be considering a pedagogical approach to learning or should they consider an andragogical approach to learning? Having a better understanding of learning theories will help determine which learning methods may be successful. This chapter compares the pedagogical and the andragogical models. Knowles' self-directed learning theory is discussed, as well as Merriam, Caffarella, and Baumgarnter (2007). Learning contracts are discussed as a way of adults taking responsibility for their learning. The authors describe how adults might take more of an active role for their learning and how educators become more of a facilitator. Reviewing these theories will help organizations maximize learning.

The New Paths of Fundamental Rights in the 21st Century: Globalization and Knowledge in a Digital Age as a Proposal
Unlike the rules, the principles do not constitute subjective rights directly demandable or immediately materialized. These are constitutional and programmatic rules that establish and finalize the purposes and tasks to be achieved, the application of which depends on the adoption of measures of implementation or execution by the legislative bodies. By requiring regulatory or administrative intervention to become effective, the principles can serve as a judicial basis and give rise to new Union powers. These are therefore impositive legal standards of 'optimization' that need to be densified. Possessing indeterminate content, they lack concrete mediations. In the event of a conflict, they are ‘object of weighting and harmonization between', allowing balancing of the antagonistic interests, which is not the case with legal rules.
