Andragogy- Adult Education
The goal of this course is to introduce trainers and teachers to concepts and tools that focus on the aspects of teaching to adult learners.
Participants will receive training on how to use different tools and strategies in their courses/ workshops in order to engage their adult learners in their own learning and support their academic development.
Moreover participants will receive training about how to properly motivate adults and about workplace learning.
Thus, at the end of this course, participants will have a better understanding of the benefits of using digital tools and targeted teaching, while teaching adults and they will have improved the skills and competences that are required for effectively engaging their learners.
More important, participants will understand how adults’ learners may think and which expectation they may have to them as Educators.
