NEW!
Engaging Adult Learners: Strategies for Information Professionals 
<http://www.plc.ischool.utoronto.ca/coursedescription.asp?courseid=257>
Mon. 12 Sep 2011 - Sun. 30 Oct 2011
6 Weeks
Instructor: Rebecca Jones
Fee: $445.00
Cert: optional

Those working in information-intensive organizations, including 
libraries, records and information management, consultancies, legal and 
health research, IT and other functions, are increasingly helping 
clients or colleagues learn to “use” or “do” something. Life-long 
learning isn’t just a slogan, it’s critical for all adults in their 
jobs, or finding a job, or expanding their personal or professional 
options. Information professionals, with their specialized knowledge of 
all types of content, tools, images, the Internet and processes, are 
well placed to play key roles as learning leaders.

This six week course guides you through the whole training process, from 
assessing learning needs of the targeted learners to selecting the right 
delivery method (face-to-face? E-learning? Blended?), to designing an 
engaging program, whether it’s an hour or multi-week. Working with the 
instructor and other students, you learn and practice strategies for 
making learning for adults interactive and relevant and gaining 
decision-maker support for learning programs.
