Adult Learning Theory with CT Association for the Education of Young Children

Adult Learning Theory Sessions

CAEYC is proud to announce that we will be hosting Adult Learning Theory 1, 2 & 3 professional development sessions in early 2016.
Please mark your calendars with the following dates: February 19, March 18, and April 15, 2016, at William C. Graustein Memorial Fund in Hamden, CT.

Adult Learning Theory 1 will provide trainers with the insight, knowledge, and skills to effectively plan and deliver instruction to adult learners in the field of early childhood education. Topics include principles of adult learning, the key differences between adults and children as learners, adapting the classroom environment for adult students, learning style/teaching style, implementing active learning, and motivation and reinforcement.

Adult Learning Theory 2 will review how to integrate the theories, principles and techniques learned in the Adult Learning Theory 1 train-the-trainer session into your presentation. Building off of this knowledge, this session will highlight the 4 main areas trainers typically need improvement (introduction of the training; questioning and assessment techniques to ascertain participant acquisition of training content; closure of the training; and meaningful reflection) to create an intentional, well-planned and meaningful presentation that relates to participants current work with young children and families.

Both Adult Learning Theory I & II will be led by Dr. Laurie Noe, associate professor and coordinator of the Early Childhood Education program at Housatonic Community College.

Adult Learning 3 explores the brain-based perspective of how adults learn, what foundational strategies work for professional learning, and the role of the facilitator or trainer in helping people make learning connections. This experience will get you thinking outside the box and playing with old ideas in new ways. Participants will be expected to bring an example of a training that they’ve conducted so we can work in small groups and analyze your work through a brain-based learning lens. This workshop will be led by Deborah Adams with the CT Office of Early Childhood

Individuals wishing to attend the Adult Learning Theory 2 session must have attended the Adult Learning Theory 1 session. The same applies for Adult Learning Theory 3, you must have attended both Adult Learning Theory 1 & 2.
