Abstract

This case study describes a personal pedagogical system that acts a guide for adult educators in their practice. The system reflects core beliefs (assumptions about truth or propriety), foundational knowledge (essential knowledge for effective teaching of adults) and an informal theory of teaching (a theory of what works and what doesn't work), all of which interact dialectically. Implications for further research and practice are discussed.

Personal Pedagogical Systems: Core Beliefs, Foundational Knowledge, and Informal Theories of Teaching

This case study describes a personal pedagogical system that acts a guide for adult educators in their practice. The system reflects core beliefs (assumptions about truth or propriety), foundational knowledge (essential knowledge for effective teaching of adults) and an informal theory of teaching (a theory of what works and what doesn't work), all of which interact dialectically. Implications for further research and practice are discussed.
