Engaging Pedagogy

Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently changed higher education and the way colleges offer their programs, and courses. It has also challenged faculty/ instructors to deliver quality courses online and in most cases without any formal training. Also, increasingly non-traditional and adult students are enrolling in college courses. Though colleges have witnessed the trend of increasing adult learners, did the faculty update their courses for adult learners? Pedagogy and andragogy are the two sides of teaching techniques. While pedagogy is frequently discussed within the higher education environment, the concept of andragogy is less mentioned and practiced. This presentation will revisit the differences between pedagogy and andragogy and refresh faculty members on the teaching techniques, encourage faculty to use the concept of andragogy, and inspire faculty to develop student-centered, engaging courses for adult learners. The presentation will provide strategies and tools faculty can use to ignite students to achieve academic and life success and more importantly it will reignite the faculty's passion for teaching and learning.
