Purchasing for someone else: If you're ordering a course for someone other than yourself, (any number of people), put the number of registrations you're buying on your registration. Then, you will receive an access code (s) that you can email to whoever you ordered the program for.  Then, that person will register. That way, you don't need to register for the program yourself.

Multiple ('bulk discount') orders: If you're ordering several of a program at once, you will receive a discount: 2-5 items, 10% discount; 6-10 items, 20% discount; 11+ items, 30% discount. (You'll receive access codes for each of these purchases, to pass on to someone else).


Here is the program outline:

1. How Adults Learn: Positives and Obstacles

Before you start: Did you have a chance to read the 'Welcome' guide? (Just press the button for "welcome' on the left side of your screen).The 'welcome' section tells you what to look for in the program, how to keep track of your time, and more. Be sure to read through it before you start section one here. In this section, we walk through the 4 steps to launch a course for the best adult learning experience. We explore learning truisms, including the specifics of how adults learn, and obstacles to adult learning. We then apply these principles to teaching our courses for more effective learning.

Although this is an instructor development course, we all need a roadmap to instruct. Here's the six-step roadmap to take you right through the process of creating a workshop. Included in these 6 steps are choices of how you present--methods so you dono't bore them to tears! Armed with the process, you'll be able to create a presentation 'from scratch', or work with what you have to make it 'teachable'.
