Life is composed of the endless pursuit of knowledge, yet little to no research has been done on how learning adapts to the adult brain. The study of androgogy, the art and science of teaching adults, attempts to uncover just that. Honors student Sara Lattman set out alongside her Communication professor, Dr. Beth Eschenfelder, to inform conference attendees about the importance of incorporating androgogy techniques into professional coaching to tap into the motivation, perseverance, and passion of our generation. On her inspiration to learn more, Lattman replied:
I took Organizational Communication with Prof. Eschenfelder last semester, and on the first day of class she mentioned that she teaches her class using andragogy. I decided to do an Honors Tutorial surrounding the subject because it struck a lot of curiosity with me and I wanted to learn more about it.
On February 9th, Lattman presented her research at the Florida Collegiate Honors Council Conference, giving her the opportunity to share her scholarship.
