Educational theory has influenced the development of a five-day summer workshop in clinical hypnosis. More than a decade of evolution of the course has resulted in a bled of ideas from two major teaching models: the andragogy and direct-teaching models. Following the recommendations of the direct-teaching model, workshop participants are introduced to practical hypnosis in a gradual, step-by-step manner. Consistent with the ideals of the andragogy model, the instructors have attempted to include students as partners in learning rather than as receptacles for pre-packaged information. Extremely favourable summer workshop evaluation data support the value of combining elements from both models. Attributes of the andragogy model are described for the benefit of those teachers of hypnosis who might wish to review their educational practices.
