On Adult Education: The Classroom Experience 1

Common themes in adult education classrooms include:

  1. Collaboratively developing ground rules

A staple of adult education classrooms, the Sexual and Gender Based Violence training which I have been recording, observing, and at times assisting with in the past two days in Dadaab is no different. The training began with “Group Norms” shared by learners and written, in this example, by a learner who also had the role of translator.

2. Small group work


Adult education classrooms also often involve small group work to break up lecture based approaches and to allow learners to have interactions with each other, viewing each other as experts in their own right.
3. Energizers!
