Supporting research

Developing and delivering professional learning to educators requires a strong understanding of andragogy. During a pandemic, this need was magnified. The professional learning examples offered in this poster presentation align directly with the work of Malcolm Knowles. His emphasis on purposeful learning, learning by doing, immediate use of learning and the integration of new ideas with existing knowledge is the foundation of Incognito PD.
