In this episode, the instructional designers from Arizona State University’s Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation (Aaron Kraft, Jinnette Senecal, Celia Coochwytewa, and Steven Crawford) define adult learning theory and andragogy, discuss the role of andragogy in higher education, and describe how we can apply adult learning theory to our courses.
