Program Introduction

The learning journey does not begin or end at formal education. More and more of us start to understand the importance and benefits of lifelong learning. With societal, economic, cultural, and technological transformations around us, the ways we work, communicate, travel, or even study has significantly changed. Continuous learning helps us stay abreast of all these changes.

Being often overlooked, adult learning is an integral part of the right to education. The needs of adult learners are oftentimes different from those of children and teenagers. Unlike them, adult learners usually draw on their wealth of experience and tend to be selective with what classifies as meaningful and relevant information. Therefore, while developing an instructional path for adult learners, one must understand the theory, principles, and technology that lays the foundation for successful adult education.

This program in Oslo has been designed with adult learners and their needs as its center of attention. The program dives deep into foundational adult-learning theory and principles and supports that knowledge with relevant tools and technology. Throughout the workshop, you will be able to identify appropriate instructional methods for a given context and gain hands-on practice with facilitation skills and e-learning authoring tools. This program is highly relevant both for offline and online adult learning solutions.
