Digital remote education for adult learners: the way forward


The remote online delivery of courses, once feared and often despised by formal and informal educational institutions, including further education providers and traditional universities, were the lifeline for many adult educators and learning. Remote digital education is here to stay. Online teachers and learners have discovered the advantages of this kind of education, particularly for working adults and housebound citizens, including its flexibility, self-paced structure and accessibility. However, they have also discovered its disadvantages, including the design of online programmes which cannot be simply transferred from classroom to the online dimension, isolation and lack of physical cues. This webinar will thereby continue the discussion about digital remote learning with a particular focus on the benefits and challenges of this new ‘normal’ mode of teaching and learning, and the way forward for creating meaningful and successful courses for adults.
