Abstract
Conducting adult learning experiences requires both knowledge and skill of how adults learn. Competence in subject matter has traditionally served as a sufficient qualification for individuals who teach adults. Results of teachers having subject matter competence only has often led to participants dropping out of the program. Today's rapidly changing, technologically oriented society has created the necessity for teachers and trainers whose competences also reflect understanding and concern for the unique needs of the adult learner, whatever the subject matter. This program seeks to meet that need.
