This module, one in a series of performance-based teacher education learning packages, focuses on a specific skill that vocational educators need to create appropriate learning environments and to plan and manage instruction that is well-suited to the learning and psychological needs of today's adults. The purpose of the module is to help the teacher manage the adult instructional process effectively. Introductory material provides terminal and enabling objectives, a list of resources, and general information. The main portion of the module includes two learning experiences based on the enabling objectives: (1) identify instructional techniques and activities appropriate for use with adults and (2) critique case studies on modifying the learning environment for adult students. Each learning experience presents activities with information sheets, samples, worksheets, checklists, and self-checks with model answers. Optional activities are provided. Completion of these two learning experiences should lead to achievement of the terminal objective through the third and final learning experience that requires (1) an actual teaching situation in which to manage the adult instructional process, and (2) a teacher performance assessment by a resource person. An assessment form is included. (YLB)
