IntroductionLearning will never be a complete and simple set of principles or theories. There are manydifferent ideas, theories, and principles involved with learning. Learning begins from dayone in a child and can last until one dies. The length of learning depends upon theindividual. Learning is more difficult for some than it is for others. Organization,motivation, awareness, attitude, expectations , and knowledge of the subject that one istrying to learn will effect how and what they learn. The Learning Style Inventory and theMyers-Briggs Indicator Type test would be a useful test for employees to make theiremployees be more effective and accurate in their productivity. In My paper I will bediscussing the difference between andragogy and pedagogy, the Learning Style Inventory(LSI), and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).A. The Adult Learner: Andragogy and PedagogyThe development of learning begins as a child and continues on throughadulthood. Pedagogy means the art and science of pediatric learning.Andragogy come after pedagogy, and is the art and science of adult learning.Pedagogy deals with ideology where andragogy deals with a system of alternativeassumptions. Pedagogy assigns full responsibility to a teacher for a childs learningconcept and method. Andragogy assigns the responsibility of ones learning behaviorto the individual. By learning the similarities and differences of the two, I can moreeffectively teach my two children. There has been a valuable set of resources thatcame out of reading the Adult Learner Chapter 4.1.

Reflective ObservationsLooking back on my reading, group discussions, and lectures from this class Ihave found that one must first go through pedagogy before they can go intoandragogy. After reading the six assumptions that are associated withpedagogy and andragogy I have found that I have went through eachassumption and continue to go through each of these assumptions daily.While looking back at myself I can say that one must actively encourage thelearning process in order for it to be effective.3. Abstract ConceptsBased upon my reading, group discussion, and lectures from this class it is mybelief that learning is facilitated by a child's parents and continues throughlife. The motivation that is nestled in a child will encourage an adolescentand an adult to...
