ADULT EDUCATION STAFF TRAINING

to

COURSE OVERVIEW:

Educators in adult education are very often overwhelmed with the specific issues they have to deal in adults’ classes (low level of motivation among students, mixed ability classes, students with specific learning needs). Apart from that, sometimes they are not skilled enough for preparing, organizing and evaluating courses, both for formal and non-formal programs. The work with adults requires specific skills, methods and knowledge. This course allows participants to get to know, experiment and practice the most relevant innovative teaching methods for work with adults. The general aim of this course is to foster excellence and innovation in education by empowering teachers, trainers, headmasters and other education staff to use innovative teaching methods.

 

AFTER COMPLETING THIS COURSE, THE PARTICIPANTS  WILL BE ABLE TO:

Use a variety of modern and interactive methods appropriate for adults

Apply adult development theory to adult education instruction, courses, and programs;

Understand better diverse individual adult learner needs and aspirations and create appropriate learning environment according to this

Utilize a broad repertoire of instructional strategies;

Plan, implement and evaluate adult education instruction, courses, and programs
