There are many great educators and they all have one thing in common. It is not that they are the best among the best in their own field. Instead, they are the ones who know best how to facilitate learning. Teachers may be experts in their respective niche, but if they do not possess the facility to assist students in the learning process, it does not matter how much they know or how skilled they are.

Abstract – The theory of transformative learning theory, first articulated by Mezirow and further refined in his later publications, is about change - dramatic, fundamental change in the way we see ourselves and the world (Mezirow and Taylor, 2009). In contrast, Knowles' model of andragogy focuses on the characteristics of the adult learner and his or her life situation (Knowles, Holton and Swanson, 2005). This article compares and contrasts the essence of Mezirow's transformational learning and Knowles' model of andragogy and provides supporting research evidence for each one. It also formulates an approach to the instructional design of learning for adults who are returning to school that incorporates appropriate concepts from these two theories.”
