The theory of adult learning is also known as Andragogy. This is a type of specialized curriculum that has been created specifically for adults. According to Malcolm Knowles, adults tend to learn things differently as compared to kids who will try to learn whatever lessons are given to them. Adults would need to take some intervals and would need the information to be supplied in small doses so that they can effectively learn.

There are some programs that are created specifically for this purpose. Andragogy is different from Pedagogy which is known to focus on how a child learns. Learning is a continuous process and the right methods will help enhance people’s ability to learn.
