Principles for Effectively Serving Adult Learners (aka Post Traditional Learners)
This session provides insights on “teaching and learning in multiple dimensions” through the Principles for Effectively Serving Adult Learners (Principles). Developed by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and based on over 10 years of survey data, the Principles serve as a framework for institutions to implement best practices in serving adult learners. The Principles will be defined and presented in case studies, with reference to how they support the first ever adult-learner institutional ranking system produced by Washington Monthly. The Principles alignment with other CIT 2017 Conference tracks will also be discussed. The Principles include: Adaptivity, Assessment of Learning Outcomes, Financing, Life and Career Planning, Outreach, Strategic Partnerships, Student Support Systems, Teaching-Learning Process, Technology and Transitions.
