Professionals working in adult education should have a strong basis in, and follow, andragogy principles.
Andragogy principles recall the importance of personalised approaches to learning in adult education, fostering learners’ agency and meaning-making processes.
The universal design for learning is a strategic framework for the development of personalised learning approaches that recognises learners’ diversity and multiple means for learning.
To effectively address adult learners’ diversity, specific psychoeducational interventions might also be required.
Art therapy can be used as a psychoeducational tool in adult education to promote the development of specific adults’ competences.
On successful completion of this Learning Unit, the participants will be able to:
- Advise on personalised learning approaches in adult education, explaining how to address adult learners’ diversity through the lenses of andragogy and universal design for learning.
- Discuss the relevance of art therapy-based psychoeducation in adult learning, naming key competences boosted by those interventions.
- Analyse current practices on andragogy and art therapy-based psychoeducation, and support adult educators and health care professionals in implementing them to address adult learners’ diversity.
