Abstract

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.
