Course Objectives This course explores to what extent foreign language teaching approaches rely on the principles of adult education. The course deals with a variety of topics such as adult learning theories, andragogy, learner-centered instruction, and compulsory/non-compulsory schooling. The goal of the course is to assert instructional and research EFL frameworks with which the adult learner's uniqueness is recognized.
