Combining theoretical background and best practices in both adult learning and developmental education, the Graduate Certificate in Developmental Education prepares educators to manage adult developmental education programs in a variety of settings, including community colleges, 4-year institutions, and continuing and community education organizations. Educators examine research-based adult learning strategies; theoretical, political, and economic issues surrounding developmental education; organizational approaches to providing developmental education programs; best practices in designing curriculum and integrating technology; and intake, teaching, assessment, and collaboration strategies. Credits earned from this certificate program may be applied toward Walden’s M.S. in Adult Learning with a specialization in Developmental Education.
