Adult learners bring a diverse range of skills, knowledge, cultural backgrounds, literacy and numeracy competence, learning styles and personality types to our classes. Our challenge as tutors is to create a learning environment that meets these needs and extends our learners' abilities.

Join this hands-on course covering creating a learning climate, how adults learn, group interactions, course planning and evaluation - suitable both for those already tutoring adults or planning to start. 

By the end of the course you will have:

  • explored how to promote a collaborative, inclusive and supportive teaching and learning environment
  • developed and demonstrated an understanding of how learners learn and how to plan for a range of learning styles
  • considered the 'adult' learner in particular
  • unpacked, practised and demonstrated a lesson planning model
  • explored, practised and demonstrated facilitation skills
