Sustainability of adult education: Andragogues as change agents

Siniša KUŠİĆ [1] , Sofija VRCELJ [2] , Anita ZOVKO [3]


The paper analyses andragogues as change agents in education. Starting from critical theory, andragogues have the potential to work within the curriculum redefinition framework by enabling participants in educational process to identify areas of knowledge deficits and build on prior knowledge. In addition to this change, they can carry out transformative learning in which the central category is critical reflection, i.e. the most important characteristic of adult learning. Andragogues are qualified people who have a wide range of activities in the industry, the business world, the military, mass media, various institutions of education institutions and other areas. Their power of change is reflected in the aspect of emancipation, liberation and development of critical awareness of oppression and in critical thinking of educational policy and official curricula.
