Teaching Adults Worldwide
Adult education is as old as Adam. We have shared knowledge in different forms, from talking to a friend, to formalizing information sharing in great universities. The importance of adult education has finally caught the attention of the movers and shakers of the world. For instance, UNESCO is now investing heavily in training teachers that are involved in TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) to increase the supply of qualified teachers in developing countries.
Our goal in offering this course is precisely to prepare and equip current and future adult educators around the world. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past twenty years, you may have noticed that education has changed. For example, computers and the Internet have changed the way we relate to knowledge. New teaching strategies are constantly being proposed and adopted in many countries. If we want to be heard in the competitive world, we have to match, or at least keep pace with these strategies when we facilitate our programs.
Are you ready to reconsider the way you teach adults? Do you think we should teach adults the same way we teach children? Let this course challenge the way you currently think about adult education.
