This paper proposes new methods for modern Andragogy following the recent experience of multicultural mediation. For this purpose I will analyze the different approaches to Andragogy - “Colonial Andragogy” and “Pluralistic Andragogy” which I conceptualized from the classical writings on Andragogy. Using these innovative terms is based on in-depth analyses of the classical approaches in Andragogy on the background of the historical periods that they developed. I claim that modern Andragogy should be seen in the context of multicultural societies. Therefore, I suggest using the tools created in multicultural mediation in the past 30 years. The structure of my paper, as stated above, will be accomplished by introducing Andragogy in its historical background. I will claim that the innovative theory, on which Kapp (the founder of Andragogy) developed his discipline of Andragogy is according to the terminology colonial Andragogy. I will exemplify a case study of colonial Andragogy in the Israeli practice nowadays. Afterwards, I will examine the development of Pluralistic Andragogy, following from the backdrop of the modern Andragogical theories. Finally, I will examine the contributions of multicultural mediation, as a process that relies on active listening and learning among the parties to the process to the theory and practice of pluralistic Andragogy.
