Well-educated facilitators are key to the success of the adult training function in organizations across sectors.
Training staff has become increasingly critical for organizational agility and responsiveness to client needs. This program helps to develop all of the essential competencies required to function as a professional in the teaching of adult learners in the workplace. It was developed at the graduate level in response to expressed needs of Master’s Degree students, who felt that an introduction to adult learning principles needed to be complemented by hands-on experiential practice in the skills of teaching adult learners.
The program promises to expose learners to all of the core theory and practice of the training field, in order to develop professionals who not only understand why they are teaching in certain ways, but also are able to skillfully apply this understanding to their actual behaviour on the job.
This Masters Certificate program (MCATD) includes 13 days of instruction over four months, followed by a practicum to be completed within a year. Participants must take Module 1 and choose two of Modules 2, 3 and 4, plus the practicum (3 modules + practicum). Details about the practicum component of the program are available on the Practicum web page.
