Course description

Learning opportunities for adults are often modeled after our classes in grade school and high school. However, adults learn much differently from children, and their motivation to learn is vastly different as well. This course explores adult learning theory and practice, how to engage the adult learner, and how to provide learning opportunities that both motivate and challenge. Human resources practitioners, leaders, and trainers alike benefit from this course.
