Abstract or Summary

This paper will provide an overview of the author's own model and approach to tertiary teaching in the arena of social sciences and developments. The model will be discussed within the context of the teaching environment and show its relationship to curent industry practice. The purposed model can be aligned to humanistic adult education as suggested by Maslow and Rogers. The humanistic adult education approach is concerned with the development of the indivdual as a whole, with particular emphasis placed on emotional and affective characteristics. Within the realm of social science and humanities, students are required to learn more than a series of theories and facts that they can apply to real world experiences. They are also required to bring a humanitarian element to the practice. For this reason emphasis needs to also be placed on afeactive learning as well as the cognitive approach of acquiring knowledge.
