Specifically, making your content, its delivery, and its application, support adult learners from the classroom to the workforce. Designing an online course carries unique challenges. While the challenges vary between content and available technology, generating original online coursework requires a unique approach characterized by resourcefulness, optimism, and a flexible mindset.
This presentation identifies types of challenges that course designers may face, provides an opportunity for participants to think critically about their own current or potential challenges, and offers both evidence- and experience-based solutions that assist in not only overcoming the challenges, but transforming them into strengths in the delivery of the course material.

Participate in this lively round table discussion busting the myth that differentiated instruction means personalized instruction. Discussion will centered on what differentiated instruction is and is not, how to structure assignments that allow for differentiation, and the role of universal design in differentiated instruction.
Come ready to offer your questions, ideas and experiences regarding differentiated instruction.

This session will help post-traditional educators facilitate more of those moments by analyzing the context, barriers, and connections that contribute to or impede the implementation of these powerful learning experiences.
Like Elvis, students and advisors often feel caught in a trap when addressing degree changes, satisfactory progress, appeals and more. This session focuses on how to engage students so they can better understand navigating institutional policies and practices while also advocating for themselves. Crafted conversations are a tool to engage with students in terms they will understand and in a more efficient manner. Participants will learn about a coaching approach and how to implement it into their practice. This workshop will engage attendees in an arts-based approach to learning, focusing on the work of the Romero Theater Troupe and their fifteen-year record of using Storytelling Theater to engage diverse audiences in a narrative and oral history-centered strategy of connecting learners to the liberal arts.

This will also include the value of stories as tools for learning and social activism. The second half of the workshop will engage attendees in the practice of organic theater, offering them an opportunity to tell stories from their experiences and to demonstrate those stories through organic theater.

In an adult learning environment such confrontations can be problematic because they require sustained commitment over time, a motivation to tackle the complex unstructured problems vexing our world such as climate change and social inequality, and a willingness to challenge one's inner map of the world. Although many classes operate at level 1 learning, it is only by creating an environment that supports level 2 learning that students can obtain lasting value from their education.
This session will outline approaches for creating a level 2 class environment that supports deep learning. Skillful, a non-profit initiative of the Markle Foundation with many partners, is working to achieve a skills-based labor market and educating employers on Skills-Based Recruiting and Hiring in Colorado and other states.

You work in the "real world" - have you learned anything since you left college that would be considered college level?
If you had to, could you use it to complete a degree in your own discipline? Has your maturing in a job taught you how to learn new things?
Winter School “Comparative Studies in Adult Education and Lifelong Learning”
Adults in today's workforce have significant post-secondary learning that can be demonstrated and evaluated. Perhaps they need to complete a degree to move up at work. If they have limited time and money, and are motivated to be successful, what could you offer them? Gateway math courses such as College Algebra and Statistics are historically some of the highest failed courses on any college campus. This trend has been particularly pungent for adult learners in Statistics. Come discover the SI program FRCC put into place, see the numbers for yourselves on how adult learners are thriving in Statistics when paired with an SI Leader, and explore how your own school could implement a similar program.
