Certified in Adult Learning

Description

This course is designed to assist students enrolled in the Adult & Career Education or the Vocational Education program in the College of Education in predicting, understanding, and controlling the fundamental principles of learning and assessment as they apply in adult educational settings.

The focus is on the study and application of psychological principles, theories, and methodologies to issues of teaching and learning for adults.

 

What Will I Learn?

  • Students will be able to:
  • Names and discuss the major categories of variables that have been studied in educational psychology in an attempt to answer the question "Why do some students learn more than others?" and arrange these in the form of a model of the teaching/ learning process.
  • define learning and compare and contrast the factors that behavioural, cognitive, humanistic, and social cognitive theorists believe influence the learning process, giving specific examples of how these principles could be used in adult learning.
  • compare and contrast the major components and techniques that differentiate instructional methods appropriate for children and youth from those appropriate for adults.
