Our current association adult education is a victim to an outdated teacher- and expert-centered model. It has its roots in puritan beliefs that wisdom is evil and the less we know, the more innocent we are. To succeed we must move out of the didactic traditional training box. We must refocus on people, how they learn best and their needs. We need to transition from expert-centered models to participant-centered models. This requires a fundamental shift in our current education programming and an unlearning of pedagogical models as applied to adult education. In the end, telling doesn't equal learning. Nor does covering content mean content is learned. Thinking, doing and participating reign.
The four essential components of instructional interactivity come from Michael Allen's research and writings.
