Foundations of Adult Education (PIDP 3100)

The Foundations of Adult Education course introduces participants to knowledge and skills which will be developed in subsequent courses of the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program. Participants will review key elements from the background and theory of adult education and the cognitive sciences. They will discuss the characteristics of the adult learner and adult learning, and outline key roles of the adult educator. In addition, participants will develop skills related to reflective practice, communication, and the use of learning tools. They will use search strategies to access resources which they will require in their work. Participants will be introduced to concepts and techniques used to plan for teaching and learning. They will examine ways to create positive environments for learning in courses, workshops, presentations, and short forms of on-the-job training.

The primary instructional strategies for the course are in-class workshops, interactive instructor presentations, discussions, group work, independent research and reflective writing.
