Mastering Adult Learning Methods


Teaching adults necessitates different methods than those that are used for children. Adults have a wealth of experience when they enter the classroom and are motivated to learn. 

This course draws on anagogical best practices and hands-on experience with several learning methods (reflection, experiential, self-directed, project-based, action learning) to give the educator a set of methodological tools for successful adult education. The course also emphasizes the importance of reflective practice to continually improve one’s education craft. Educators must provide opportunities for adult learners to use their aptitudes, abilities, and existing knowledge to engage in new, relevant learning experiences.
