Teaching Adults in Extension (TAE)

Teaching Adults in Extension

This booklet is designed to help you to teach adults, whether you are an extension worker in agriculture or health and nutrition or mother and child care or community health or in integrated rural development, or teaching literacy or family planning or workers’ education or courses for women or income-generating/vocational programmes or technical subjects in continuing education or some other form of education or training for adults

For teaching adults is different from teaching children or college students. If you try to teach adults like children, you will usually have little effect and you will sometimes provoke opposition. If you teach them as adults, your work will become more effective and more permanent.

This booklet starts the process of thinking about what is so different about teaching adults. You will be able to add to these points as your experience of teaching adults grows. We hope that you will find this booklet useful.
