Abstract
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the congruency between the teaching beliefs and the teaching behaviors of adult educators as well as the factors that may affect this congruency. A qualitative study was conducted using seven adult educators. The participants were interviewed, observed, and then interviewed again. The study found that six out of the seven participants had at least one incongruence between their behaviors and beliefs. These incongruities fell into one of three categories. These categories included their beliefs and behaviors in regards to instructional strategies and methods that they used, how they interacted with their learners, and the role of the adult educator. Also, eight factors that affected the participants‟ congruency were identified. Implications for future research and practice are also discussed.
