Do you remember that fear you had when thinking about returning to college? Like somehow you would walk into the classroom and the teacher would talk to you much like the old Peanuts teacher did with Charlie Brown... “Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah.” And the kicker is that you would be the only one who didn’t get it? Well rest assured, that fear is quite common for adults who have been out of school for a while.
At Marian University, our MAP instructors understand that adults learn differently than they once did. This concept is called andragogy and basically says:
Marian's Adult Programs is perfect for you in part because we teach the way that you learn. You will find that our instructors utilize a variety of teaching techniques to engage the students in our classrooms. We draw from your personal experiences and areas of expertise to enhance the learning environment. We respect your learning needs and appreciate the value of the input you provide. I often tell my students, I learn as much from them as I hope they are learning from me. With that in mind, put your fears and apprehensions aside. In MAP, we truly understand what nontraditional learners need in the classroom and we do all we can to provide that.
