Coaching as a Reflection of Changes in the Adult Education.

The evolution of both theory and practice of andragogy should be understood as, generally direct result of adaptation tendencies towards the cultural changes. On the other hand, it should be remembered that constant efforts for the sake of activities enabling such adaption changes to exist, belong to andragogues’ duties, bearing in mind that the pace and intensity shall be of level eliminating the possibility to deepen the gap between the cultural and educational reality. The paradigmatic change, evoked by new issues within the andragogical reflections, reflects the change taking place both in andragogical theory and practice. It seems that coaching is one of these ideas that significantly reflect the direction of ongoing changes in adult education.

Key words: andragogy; adult education; coaching.
