Leading Online Learning Initiatives in Adult Education
Olesen-Tracey, Kathy
Journal of Adult Education, v39 n2 p36-39 2010
Adult learners often face barriers to participation in traditional classroom instruction. As technology access grows and adults naturally incorporate technology into their daily lives, adult education programs are finding innovative ways to blend technology with instruction through quality online learning opportunities. This article highlights the tips, strategies, and best practices learned from the deployment of GED-i, a nationally recognized online GED test preparation curriculum developed at the Center for the Application of Information Technologies at Western Illinois University. However, the procedures presented are applicable to all online/distance learning options and are based on solid administrative leadership strategies such as determining benchmarks, establishing and communicating clear processes and procedures, and setting professional development goals.
