The Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching for Adult Educators prepares educators to design and deliver online courses and programs geared to adult learners. Grounded in adult learning theory, courses examine how to leverage new technologies to enhance the adult learning process; analyze, select, and design the online instructional strategies most effective for adult learners; integrate course management tools and multimedia technologies into synchronous and asynchronous environments; and assess student learning in those environments. Credits earned from this certificate program may be applied toward Walden’s M.S. in Adult Learning with a specialization in Online Teaching.
