Every adult educator wants to prevent the “deadly class” – one in which we can’t get a discussion going, learners are too tired to participate, or students actively resist learning.  Join CUNY School of Professional Studies Adjunct Professor Susan Fountain on Wednesday, June 23rd to discuss strategies for dealing with classroom challenges that every adult educator inevitably faces.  She will draw on adult learning theory to examine how building self-direction, collaboration, critical reflection, and social support can lead to an engaged learning environment.

Presenter: Susan Fountain is an Adjunct Professor with the CUNY School of Professional Studies where she teaches courses on handling conflict, interpersonal dynamics, and adult learning and development.  She is also a staff and development consultant for schools, nonprofits, and UN agencies and the curriculum developer of SPS’ new Advanced (Graduate) Certificate in Adult Learning: Program Design and Facilitation.

SPS’ Advanced (Graduate) Certificate in Adult Learning: Program Design and Facilitation is a four-course (12 credit) certificate in which students will explore how theory and research on adult learning and development can support innovative teaching and learning in the workplace, community-based organizations, and the college classroom.  For more information and registration, visit www.sps.cuny.edu/adultlearning.

Free Webinar!

  How can adult educators and trainers both support and challenge learners to address their assumptions about race? How can uncomfortable, emotional and/or conflictual conversations about race be transformed into learning opportunities for students — and teachers? Join two experienced adult educators for a conversation about these and related questions.
 
This free webinar is designed for adult educators in corporate, nonprofit and community settings, as well as college instructors and graduate students who plan to teach.
