Here is the program outline:

1. How Adults Learn: From Theory to Application

Before you start: Please read the Welcome section. It has time frames for completing the work (just a guide) and your monitor form. The state requires keeping the time you spend working on the class. Since much of the work you will do in this course is not timed at your computer, the monitor form allows you to log in the other time you spend working on the course. Recognizing how adults learn and their learning obstacles solves many of our common presentation problems, as you'll see in this section. We explore the four steps to launch a course for the best adult learning experience. You'll get strategies to access your particular audience, get more participation, and grab their attention.
