dc.description.abstract The revision of education legislation in South-Africa has brought about a changed approach in teaching which requires that students' background knowledge and frame of reference be accommodated in courses. Adult learners registering for post-basic courses at tertiary education institutions already possess acquired knowledge and experience, and have certain preferences in teaching and learning methods. They have also developed a personal interest in their vocational fields. Moreover, they are able to assume responsibility for their own learning, and they desire to become involved in the planning of their teaching. The principle of active involvement of adult learners in their learning, as well as the structuring of own knowledge, is endorsed by the literature as being the most effective approach to learning. Guidance by learning facilitators must take this into account. It appears that the active involvement of adult learners in the drawing up an agreement between learner and learning facilitator can offer a possible solution. The aim of the study was to formulate guidelines for framing an individualised learning-teaching agreement between adult learners and learning facilitators for the completion of a selected module in Community Health Nursing or Occupational Health at a residential Technikon. A contextual, qualitative, exploratory and descriptive research design was selected, in which an inductive strategy was followed. The study had three phases. During the first phase, focus-group interviews were conducted to explore adult learners' views of teaching, learning and a possibile agreement. The analysed data were summarised in a table of 37 consolidated statements. During the second phase, a literature study was carried out by using the main categories of the data of Phase 1 as a point of departure. A second table of 42 consolidated statements was drawn up. After completion of this phase, the main categories were represented in a conceptual framework. The data from the first two phases were consolidated and by logical inferences 11 guidelines were formulated, as well as the rationale and operationalision of each, for drawing up a teaching-learning agreement. These guidelines were validated during a critical discussion with fellow learning facilitators. The guidelines direct the learning facilitator and adult learner in jointly drawing up an individualised teaching-learning agreement, according to which the needs of the adult learner and the vocational requirements of the educational institution and occupational councils can be reconciled in order to ensure that effective learning and vocational preparation can eventually be achieved. en_US
