Andragogy: Education vs. Learning

This discussion will focus on the way in which restorative concepts, processes and practice are learned. Andragogy – the study of adult learning – is critical in how we facilitate learning. HOW we teach is as important as WHAT we teach. The content or curriculum is not the focus but rather how we approach learning to ensure that we are creating an environment that engages the adult learner in ways that are different than past educational experiences. It is critical that we understand how adults learn in order to create change and develop the field of restorative practices.
