Adult Education, Continuing Education, Chautauqua
Chautauqua and its cofounder, John Vincent, significantly contributed to the adult and higher education movement from 1874 to 1924. Four lessons are examined for adult educators: (1) vision of educating the masses, (2) importance of good leaders, (3) critical role of faculty, and (4) expecting and handling criticism and mistakes.
