World Education offers a number of online courses for adult educators. Some are self-paced and free, others are instructor-led and charge a fee. The online course "Research-based Strategies and Models for Adult Transitions to Postsecondary Education" is now open for registration. Course dates are January 14 to March 10, 2010.  Estimated completion time is 24 hours for the 8-week course, and the fee is $249.

In this course, you will read and discuss the research on the changing workforce and examine the reasons why adult learners need to go beyond the GED and English language study to advance their earning potential. You will also learn about the challenges facing adult students in postsecondary education and investigate strategies and program models that support adult transitions to postsecondary education. Throughout the course, you will gather local and regional data on the labor market, educational needs, and academic programs and support services offered by area colleges to guide future program development and planning.

If you have any questions about registering for these courses, contact Leah Peterson at lpeterson@worlded.org.
