|Other Titles:||A Study on the Learning Characteristics of Aboriginal Adult Learners and the Corresponding Teaching Strategies|
Department of Adult and Continuing Education, NTNU
Many adult education scholars reported that the adults' learning is usually interrelated with their experiences. However, recent related studies indicated that educational paradigms of mainstream societies could seldom respond to the aborigines' educational needs and their learning styles. As studies showed, their cultural contexts and living experience are often neglected, even distorted, in their teaching-learning processes. With the latest multicultural perspective on the aboriginal educational reform, it is necessary to understand the learning characteristics of the aborigines and to develop corresponding teaching strategies. This study focused on understanding the beliefs on education, learning styles and teaching strategies of 18 aborigines who participated in the Continuing Education Program offered by the Adult Education Research Center, National Taiwan Normal University. Data collection was mainly through indepth interviews centered on intersubjective dialogues between the subjects and the researcher. Results of the study bear implications on the aborigine adult education policy making, aborigine educational program planning, and teaching-learning process designs, etc.
