What the experts say

This webinar is an excellent overview of some of the most effective and engaging web resources for adult education students. It's a great resource for teachers who are looking to enhance their classroom experience, offering something for every level of student. Teachers can use the resources for independent lab work, homework, flipped learning, remediation, or just for fun. Not only does the presenter highlight useful online tools, she also provides information regarding new research and teaching methods. Those methods include those delivered online as well as those offered in traditional settings.

The collection was developed with the goal of aligning with Adult Learning Theory (andragogy) in ways that support and extend effective instruction. Androgogy speaks specifically to the different motivations that play into the ability of adult learners to advance through coursework and complete modes of study.
