Summary

Gibbons et al. (1980) reported 14 principles in "teaching for self-education." Four of these principles illustrate some of the challenges involved in applying the principles to classroom learning: (1) in self-education, the locus of control is in the self-educator, whereas, in formal education, the locus of control is in institutions, their representatives, or their prescription; (2) self-education is usually a concentrated effort in one field rather than a general study of many; (3) self-education is usually applied education--learning for immediate application to a task, and from the practical experience in executing it; and (4) self-educators are self-motivated, that is, they are committed to achievement in the field of their choice, even when faced with difficulties. Teaching for each of these principles and the other 10 involves separating out a strategy for applying each of them and then creating tactics for classroom use. (The principles and application strategies were examined in a workshop following the presentation of this paper. Includes 22 references.) (KC)
