Rini Novianti Yusuf, Yanti Shantini

Abstract

The concept of adult education is one of the concepts that characterize non-formal education programs. Adult education or the term andragogy is the art and science to help adults learn. Learning for adults can be a necessity, when an adult has an awareness of his needs, meaning that the he has a mature self-concept. Self-concept maturity can be seen from the development of adult self-concept which is influenced by self-awareness, interaction, self-esteem, individual role, and experience. After passing the phase of self-concept formation, usually adults are included in the type of positive self-concept. The condition of adult learn, of course, is involvement with self-concept maturity as expressed by Knowles about adult learning assumption. One of them is self-concept. In adult learning, learners are directly involved in every learning activity, therefore, there is need for maturity of positive self-concept of learners. Thus, there are implications of self-conceptual assumptions in adult learning, characterized by positive self-concept types and the development of self-concept formation.
