Adult learners approach learning differently than younger learners. They desire more purposeful, goal-oriented and practical learning experiences. The best instructional programs for adults are tailored to their needs and informed by how their interests and life conditions impact their learning choices.
Join us online to learn the characteristics of adult learners and how to create balanced course designs for them that incorporate learner autonomy, effective knowledge creation, and community connectedness.

This program is designed for faculty and instructional designers who need to better understand adult learning preferences and who want a practical framework they can use to make their course design choices. In particular, you will learn to apply nine points of customization that will help to make a difference in adult learning engagement and success.
