SSDL — Andragogy


This split is reminiscent of an old debate in adult education. Teachers of the S1 and S2 types appear more “pedagogical,” while teachers of the S3 and S4 types appear more “andragogical” and the two camps readily oppose each another. But like more recent discussions of andragogy (and staged models like Pratt’s), the SSDL model infuses the assumptions of andragogy through all levels of education and through all methods of teaching–even directive methods, when they are part of a long-term program for developing greater self-direction.
