This online program consists of seven individual 15-week facilitated courses based on best practice literature for professional development and teacher education.
Currently in development, this innovative program will provide instructors with an understanding of the adult literacy population, including a survey of adult learning and development theory as it pertains to low literate adults who may also have learning disabilities. It will provide instructors with a firm foundation in pedagogy/andragogy, instructional strategies for teaching reading, writing, and developing numeracy, and an understanding of critical issues in adult literacy (such as motivating and retaining students, and maintaining professional boundaries).
