Engaging Adult Learners: Strategies for Information Professionals 
<http://www.plc.ischool.utoronto.ca/adultlearn.asp>
Mon 29 Oct 2012 - Sun. 9 Dec 2012
6 Weeks
ONLINE
Instructor: Juanita Richardson
Fee: $450.00

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.
