Our training is based on years of experience training in private, corporate, and government sectors and the application of the latest theories in Adult Learning. This page contains links reflecting the various Learning Theories that have been incorporated into our training approaches.

The selected references for Learning have a significant bias towards the current revisions of the concepts originally advanced and promoted by
Malcolm Knowles in his 1973 book The Adult Learner: A Neglected Species. Knowles referred to his concepts on learning as Andragogy (and-rè-go´jê) or the "the art and science of helping adults learn". Since then debates regarding the differences (or lack of differences) between Adult and Child learning have raged and "the term has taken on a broader meaning since Knowles' first edition. The term currently defines an alternative to pedagogy and refers to learner-focused education for people of all ages." (LearnActivity.com: An Introduction to Andragogy)  This Andragogical bias exists in our training because much of what Knowles' presents has been validated in my own training experiences over the years, working with students of all ages and capabilities.
