This publication is a guide for those planning and facilitating a "Helping Adults Learn" Workshop designed to assist higher education faculty and staff in promoting greater access and success for adult learners in higher education. An overview of the workshop describes the purpose, goals (to increase understanding of theory and research on adult learning, to assess the impact on adults of current institutional services and programs, to promote improved services and programs for adult learners) and objectives. An opening section discusses the role of the facilitator including responsibilities, materials, and planning tips. The workshop consists of four modules, each with its own section of the guide and covering: an introduction and overview; (2) characteristics of the adult learner; (3) facilitating adult learning success: designing programs; (4) facilitating adult learner success: designing instruction; and (5) facilitating the next steps: the needed resources. Each section outlines that section's objectives and suggests activities including worksheets for individual and small group activities. Appendix A contains sample agendas for a 6.5-hour format or an 8-hour format. Appendix B contains 14 overhead transparency masters. Appendix C contains four articles presented in the workbook for participants. Appendix D offers California State University references, and appendix E contains bibliographies totaling approximately 120 items for modules 2, 3, and 4. (JB)
