School of Ed Adult Learning

The Graduate Certificate in Facilitating Adult Learning provides practical skills to effectively design and deliver instruction for adult learners within a variety of settings (higher education, workplace training, community settings, etc.). Those who teach adults have knowledge in their area of expertise but often have little background in how to teach that topic. Teaching adult learners requires a different skill set from teaching younger learners. Through this certificate, students will learn how to design and facilitate learning for adults.
