Kobe JALT:

Trend Five: The Adult Education Boom

Date: Saturday, May 21st, 2005 Time: 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Speaker: Curtis Kelly

Unlike any time since World War II, Japanese education is undergoing a drastic change, and the change is just beginning. There are five major trends influencing education, one of which is the return of adults to the classroom. The return of adults is the least understood and least prepared for trend, but demographic studies show that we are just now at the start of a major adult education boom. Unfortunately, most of the experts who are teaching adults rely on the same techniques they use with other students, despite data that shows traditional methods do not work. We need to become familiar with the adult pedagogies.
