When developing learning experiences for adults, it’s important to consider that adult learning needs differ from children’s. Adults have divided attention and divided time. They are best motivated when they see how professional development is relevant to their professional lives, and they are most engaged when they feel their personal contributions matter to the group.

In this course, you will learn the theories and assertions to consider when working with adult learners. You'll also learn principles that can guide the development, selection, or implementation of a professional development course.


In this course you will learn:

  • The differences between teaching children and teaching adults
  • Six assumptions to keep in mind when working with adult learners
  • The multiple roles adults fill in addition to the role of learner
  • How adults view themselves (self-concept)



By completing/passing this course, you will attain the certificate Teacher Quality Certificate
