Meeting Adult Learners in the Middle: Creating a Collegiate Space between Home and Work

Adult students, often categorized as "non-traditional", are becoming a larger part of the undergraduate student body. Adjunct professors can potentially understand their balancing act of home and work better than anyone. The skills that adult learners bring to the college classroom can enhance the learning environment for everyone, including the professor. Thus, it's imperative for adjuncts to meet adult learners in the middle and help them build their collegiate confidence and academic know how. In this session, participants will not only learn about the trends of adult learners, but they will engage in helpful strategies to optimize their contributions.
