Malcolm Knowles, Andragogy, and SDL

March 1, 2020



I had the honor and privilege of working with Malcolm Knowles in 1972 as we developed a 30-minute video in cooperation with the Nebraska Education Television Council for Higher Education regarding his work in introducing the concept of “andragogy” to people in the United States. It aired periodically on the Nebraska Public Television network that year and then was available for viewing for several years after that. This interview with Malcolm provides a wonderful glance into both the thinking of Malcolm and how he initiated for many an understanding of self-directed learning. In light of both the Society’s new definition of SDL and our continued recognition of the value in honoring Malcolm’s 1975 definition, I recommend viewing this vintage video.
