Abstract : This paper examines how the Department of Defense incorporates pedagogical and andragogical theories of learning within Professional Military Education. The goal is to show how both theories are used in a blended capacity to meet the needs of joint military leaders. This research examines each theory and its fundamental design in an attempt to determine if pedagogy alone can meet this need through an instructional format, or if andragogy, and its learner-driven format can be blended into the curriculum to create a more productive and effective experience for the learner.
