Applying Andragogical Principles to Corporate Functioning

Dr. John A Henschke

Lindenwood University, Chair and Associate Professor of Andragogy

When is a lecture not a lecture? When it’s a living lecture.  Dr. Henschke has used the Andragogical “Living Lecture” process successfully with numerous conference and learning groups of four persons to up to 275 persons connected to various topics, starting in 1971 to the present time.  He has found it to be a way to actively engage participants in a learning process, and it can be applied to any chosen workplace learning and performance topic, no matter the size of the audience.

Please join Dr. Henschke as he shares examples from his wealth of experience and contributions in applying andragogical principles. During his “Living Lecture” Dr. Henschke will discuss the copyrighted Modified Instructional Perspectives Inventory (MIPI) and scoring process. This tool, used to evaluate teacher-reported use of andragogical principles, has been validated multiple times and has been adapted for use in 20 completed doctoral dissertations.

Before the presentation the audience will be asked to serve as “listening teams” according to the section of the room they are sitting in---one section to listen to the presentation for points requiring clarification (the clarification team), another for points with which they disagree (the rebuttal team), another for points they wish to have elaborated on (the elaboration team), and a fourth for problems of practical application they wish the speaker to address (the application team). After the presentation the teams will be asked to “buzz” in groups of four or five to pool their thinking about the points they want raised, following which one member of each group gives a summary of its deliberations and the speaker responds to each item in turn until time runs out or all items are discussed.  The presentation will combine the reciprocity of empathy, trust, and sensitivity in concert with the ability and potential of learners for the same.

* Each attendee will be provided a copy of the copyrighted Modified Instructional Perspectives Inventory (MIPI) and scoring process

John A. Henschke received his Ed.D. Degree at Boston University with Malcolm S. Knowles.  He has researched and tested his adult education/HRD (andragogical) ideas for 44 years within educational and corporate entities in the USA and 20 countries around the world since 1970 (Brazil, South Africa, West African Republic of Mali, Thailand, Austria, Germany, Peoples’ Republic of China, Italy, Australia, Taiwan, Romania, etc.).  He has been privileged to make 406 presentations to adult education/HRD conferences, published 176 book chapters and articles, served as dissertation chair or committee member to 86 doctoral graduates, and major advisor to 200 masters graduates.
