Course Description

Start with any of the 5 core courses, offered twice a year.
This course is 12 learning hours including 4.5 hours of live sessions.  It is recommended that learners spend approximately 4 hours per week on this course, including the 1.5 hour live session. 


Adult learners represent a wide range of diverse backgrounds, ages, lifestyles, races, abilities, religions, etc.  Adapting the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively facilitate inclusion in adult education settings is becoming a required skill for all adult educators.  Educators are being asked to re-examine our own assumptions--about our learners, our course content, our learning settings, and even ourselves.  Our collective ability to respond to, and be enriched by, these challenges will determine the success of our adult education practice.
