AMDS 8832 - Education Design for Adult Learners


(4 cr.) What is transformational learning and which approaches are most effective? Students are provided with the opportunity to answer questions such as this through the examination of theories and concepts of the learning process, including intelligence, cognition, motivation, and facilitation of adult learners. Students evaluate the components involved in the design and development of an adult learning curriculum. Gaining hands-on experience, students apply existing principles and current concepts to design a curriculum for a specific adult-learner population. They also engage in the reflection process by assessing their project as well as their existing experience in curriculum development to identify areas for additional knowledge and skill building. Aiding their continual doctoral-level study, students prepare an annotated bibliography to help them better understand their sources and to ensure the relevance, accuracy, and quality of sources used in research. (Prerequisite(s): Foundation and core courses; or permission of the program director.)
