Any topic (writer’s choice)
Through the Resources this week, you have learned that the place to begin in planning a learning experience is actually at the endby defining what you want your adult learners to know, do, and/or appreciate in the form of learning outcomes. Although the orientation of many of the resources is toward designing a college-level course, the process and components described also apply to developing a class, session, roundtable, workshopwhatever the specific adult education setting calls for.
Imagine that you are planning a learning experience in the same setting as the adult educator whom you interviewed in Week 2. You want to include a panel of experts sharing their experiences and views. You want to incorporate opportunities for the experts and adult learners to interact. And you want to structure this learning experience so that adult learners are actively engaged as much as possible.
