Webinar Description: 

The Institute for Leadership in Education Development (I-LED) presents the first webinar of a 4- part series on interactivity and adult learning. 

When was the last time you felt like you truly learned something as an adult? Both the adult learner and the adult brain need different tools and experiences than instructional methods for youth and children in order to retain the information. Adults prefer to learn using examples that are relevant to their experiences and work and applicable to problem-solving or solution-finding. Providing a variety of learning activities can help you meet this unique need for adult learners. In this webinar, we will cover the elements and theories of learning activities for both in-person and virtual settings that are best suited for adult learners.  

As a result of this learning session, participants will be better able to: 

  • Describe a variety of learning activities for both in-person and virtual instruction; 
  • Determine which learning activities are best suited for their learning sessions goals;  
  • Identify the main theories of adult learning principals that encourage learning transfer and retention; and  
  • Give original examples of learning activities to implement in future learning sessions.  

Please note that registration will be capped at 100 participants to maximize participant engagement and interaction. This webinar will be recorded and disseminated to all registrants and will be uploaded on FUTURES website for additional viewing.
