Not Your Grandma's Oldsmobile: Navigating the Changing World of Adult learning
September 27th, 2012
5:30pm - 8:45pm
The adult learner is becoming more paradoxical. He/she is becoming more technologically dependent, yet more ubiquitous, searching for equilibrium, yet looking for applicative answers to real world questions, attending courses with the intention of learning, yet desperately in need of being inspired. The world of learning theory has been addressing these issues, but bringing it altogether is the difficult part. So how does one create a learning environment for the 21st century ubiquitous, technology savvy learner who is desperate to be inspired and inspire others? Instructional Design scholar, author and award winning educator, T M “Tim” Stafford will help unwrap this learning “trilemma” and help create an understanding of the evolution of learning, an understanding of epistemology and how to move towards transformative practice. This fun and engaging time together will inspire you to embrace the shifts in paradigm for the new breed of learner and a new level of instructional design.
