Elements of the Andragogic Process

The andragogic process consists of eight elements:

• Preparing the learners
• Considering the physical and psychological climate setting
• Learner involvement in the various stages of learning –
• Diagnosing their own needs
• Formulating their own objectives
• Designing and developing plans,
• Evaluating their own outcomes

These concepts will influence a mentor’s presentation style and relationships with the learner. So how consistent are your results with what you imagined your presentation style to be? How would you like your style to grow and change in the future?
