ACHE Webinar Series Sneak Peek – Principles for Effectively Working With Adult Learners

July 13, 2016 9:20 PM | Anonymous

Whether returning for basic skills, professional certifications, or degree completion programs, adult learners are becoming more prevalent on today's campuses. These learners bring with them unique characteristics and skill sets, and have different wants and needs than typical college students. We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with the School of Education at Regent University to bring a session over this very topic to our Summer Webinar Series.

The key to successful programs and satisfied adult learners lies in understanding what motivates them. During this session, a leader in higher education will discuss the unique characteristics of adult learners and of those who teach them.

During this webinar, Don Finn will provide: 

  • An overview of critical adult learning theory
  • Characteristics of adult learners and those who successfully teach them
  • Tips for effectively working with adult learners
