Masters Certificate in Adult Training and Development
The original Certificate in Adult Training and Development, offered by OISE since 1994, has moved and is now offered as a Masters Certificate in Adult Training and Development exclusively by SEEC in partnership with CODI. This program retains all of the original materials and is taught by the facilitators formerly in the OISE program.
Enhance your knowledge and skill in helping others learn, through a hands-on, experiential approach with the best possible balance of theory and practice.
The program consists of five 3-day classroom sessions where you will learn essential adult learning theory and practice, including fundamental adult learning concepts and models, needs assessment, instructional design, presentation and facilitation skills.
After the completion of the modules, you will engage in a rigorous practicum, where you'll apply everything you've learned in a real world situation that you select.
Module 1: Understanding the Adult Learner
Module 2: Needs Assessment and Evaluation
Module 3: Instructional Design
Module 4: Presentation Design and Delivery
Module 5: Facilitation Skills
This Masters Certificate program has been developed to suit the needs of adult learners and working professionals. Modules are arranged in clusters of 3 full in-class weekdays - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Module 2 is usually held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The modules may be taken in the order that suits your scheduling needs, except for module 5. Module 5 is both facilitation skills and a program review and should be the last module you attend.
