Overview

Presenting numerous activities—for both individuals and groups—designed to foster self-knowledge and growth in teaching, the authors examine the primary elements of the teaching-learning exchange. They explain how teaching style is developed, and they suggest specific approaches for matching methods to style. Valuable special resources, including scales for measuring beliefs and values about teaching, help describe individual teaching styles.The need is increasing exponentially for adult education, delivered in a wide range of forms by a variety of educators. Traditionally trained teachers of adults may soon become the minority, as "lay" persons fill the growing demand for adult educators. In order to succeed and improve as teachers, it is imperative that these newcomers—as well as their professionally trained colleagues—examine their own beliefs and attitudes toward teaching and learning and use the information to develop teaching styles suited to their own personalities.This book provides adult educators in all settings—university extension, literacy programs, religious adult education, business and government training, and others—with the tools to develop a "road map" for exploring, reflecting, and growing as teachers.
