Academagogy is a learner-centred teaching model that offers flexibility for an educator to choose the most appropriate teaching style, evaluation, and learning experience based on learners' needs. However, previous applications of academagogy have shown limitations such as workload and time commitments. In this research in progress paper, we present a pilot study using academagogy supported by artificial intelligence. Our objective was to personalize the learning experiences of adult learners in a 13-week semester of an information technology course at a regional Australian university. The mixed method analysis of learner reflections and semi-structured interviews showed an increased cognitive ability to learn independently. The learners reported feeling more positive emotions than negative ones during the semester. In addition, the learners felt a sense of belonging and connection in blended learning. These findings have implications for creating sustainable online learning environments to promote quality adult education.
