Adult education classes for lifelong learners
Adult students come to class with a wealth of experience and knowledge. They also often face unique challenges and have different expectations from the education experience. It takes a special approach to help these learners reach their full potential.
Our adult education courses are designed to address professional and career-based learning as well as community-based education. These classes encompass topics such as adult learning theory and its application to curricula and instructional design, the effective use of technology and the assessment of learning.
Taking adult education courses allows you to develop new skills, deepen you knowledge in key areas and pursue new opportunities. Many professionals can benefit from taking adult education classes online, including community college instructors, corporate trainers and those who work in an instructional or mentoring capacity with adult students.
