Description
This course deals with various advanced theories and approaches to teaching adults, paying special attention to the role of English communication for the workplace. As part of our framework, we will use major adult learning theories such as transformative, self-directed, experiential, and cooperative, in order to explore various aspects of adult development as they relate to life-long learning. The course uses extensive readings, class discussions, and site observations of adult education centers, community education, and workplace education settings to address adult teaching strategies in various environments. The course in particular will address the following topics: learning and improving English literacy as an adult; advanced approaches to teaching reading, writing and communications skills; technology as a teaching tool; teaching students with disabilities; and cultural and gender discrimination.
