If you are more of a visual learner and would like to see the below information presented as an infographic, check out the "Andragogy (Adult Learning Theory) Infographic" link above.
Malcolm Shepherd Knowles (1913-1997) was an American educator well known for the use of the term Andragogy as synonymous to the adult education. According to Malcolm Knowles, andragogy is the art and science of adult learning, thus andragogy refers to any form of adult learning. (Kearsley, 2010). A more complete biography can be found at the link below.
The term andragogy can be supposedly equivalent to the term pedagogy. Andragogy in Greek means man-leading in comparison to pedagogy, which in Greek means child-leading. However, it should be noticed that the term pedagogy is used since the Ancient Greek time while Alezander Kapp, a German educator, originally used the term andragogy in 1833.
In 1980, Knowles made four assumptions about the characteristics of adult learners (andragogy) that are different from the assumptions about the characteristics of child learners (pedagogy). In 1984, Knowles added the fifth assumption.
In 1984, Knowles suggested four principles that are applied to adult learning:
