Personal Pedagogical Systems: Core Beliefs, Foundational Knowledge, and Informal Theories of Teaching

By Edward W. Taylor, John Dirkx and Daniel D. Pratt


This case study describes a personal pedagogical system that acts a guide for adult educators in their practice. The system reflects core beliefs (assumptions about truth or propriety), foundational knowledge (essential knowledge for effective teaching of adults) and an informal theory of teaching (a theory of what works and what doesn\u27t work), all of which interact dialectically. Implications for further research and practice are discussed
