Engaging Adult Learners: Strategies for Information Professionals
Mon 29 Oct 2012 - Sun. 9 Dec 2012
Instructor: Juanita Richardson
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 online 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.
