« back to classes page
New sessions of this class begin on the third Wednesday of each month, and each session covers six weeks of online training.  New lessons are released each Wednesday and Friday during those six weeks, and you will be able to complete the course work at your convenience – at any time of day or night. 

If you're excited about the challenge of reaching and teaching adult learners, you're in the right place! In this course, you'll discover how to use the newest educational methods to create a student-centered classroom that's perfectly suited for adult learners. 

 

First, we'll explore the unique needs and motivations of adult students and find out just what they're expecting from your class. After that, we'll examine your students' different learning styles and multiple intelligences and look at how you can teach to each learner's strengths. We'll also talk about ways to get misbehaving or under-achieving students back on track. 

Next, we'll delve into a host of innovative teaching techniques that will turn your students into active learners and set them up for success. We'll also look at high-tech, low-tech, and no-tech educational tools you can use to capture and hold your students' attention. 

We'll follow that up by tackling a challenging topic: how to organize your material effectively and design strong lesson plans. We'll also talk about creating a warm, welcoming classroom environment and preparing a fun orientation. 

In addition, we'll look at how to create effective tests and how to teach your students good study skills. We'll also check out a wide range of assessments that will help you grade anything from a hairstyle to an ESL essay. And finally, we'll talk about making your classroom accessible and enjoyable for students with disabilities. 

If you're training to teach adults, the information and hands-on activities in this course will give you the confidence you need to succeed—and you'll know all the tricks and techniques for winning over this fun, exciting, and very demanding group of students.
