leaners GPAs at 85 100? learners prepared to be competitive in the workplace? We can teach the way we were taught, or we can teach the way people learn.

If a student cant learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn. Ignacio Estrada The man (or woman) who can make hard things easy is the educator. Ralph Waldo Emerson Self-education is, I firmly

Adult learning activities such a role plays, scenarios or similar training approaches Inquiry-based dialogue using protocols to surface the thinking of learners Experiential learning activities or exercises

(note: students dont learn from experience, they learn from reflecting on experiences in an educational setting) Paired or small group work Problem solving exercises Blended learning using appropriate technological resources to support training

Case study exercises Problem-based learning exercises Individual, group and class work using visual, auditory or kinesthetic stimuli to prompt discussion, discourse and related class work. Adult Learning Concepts (Malcolm Knowles) Relevant, Active, Engaged, Learner Centered.
