Engaging Youth Learners

Choy, Sarojni C. (2005) Engaging Youth Learners. Quest, 2(Winter), pp. 26-28.


Much has been said and written about pedagogy, andragogy and adult learning principles to customise and improve learning in the post secondary education sector. Knowles’ (1990) principles for adult learning remain the key set of guiding philosophy that underpins delivery to learners in the post secondary sector, hence all learners are classed as adults. Knowles’ (1990) principles adhere to a set of assumptions which is supposed to be tested before one decides whether the approach should be pedagogical, andragogical or a combination of both.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
