AbstractThis paper offers a continuation to an earlier paper on the methods of adult education. In the first part, a presentation is given of the methods which m ay be applied during the initial stages of education for adults, and which have the primary role of encouraging the study environment. In this study, four approaches are presented for stimulating multi-directional communication between participants in the education programme. These methods involve discussion: “ pro et contra”, the method of unconcluded statements, and the “a quarium” method. For each method, clear indications are given for the teaching objectives, together with precise instructions for their implementation. Likewise, attention is drawn to the practical conditions (number of participants, recommended time, suitable equipment and materials in the premises). In the conclusion of her paper, the author stresses the multilateral usefulness of such methods: not only are they ideal for the prese ntation of teaching material, but they are also most suitable for the transmission of educational materials, and therefore serve an educational role through their direct influence on behavioural characteristics.
