Adult Education - Diploma
The Diploma in Adult Education program is being redesigned as a self directed learning program starting April 1, 2013. This self directed approach has been established so that you can complete your ADED courses in a continuous entry, self-paced fashion. In other words, you can start your courses at any time and complete your courses faster than the normal 8 weeks.
The Diploma in Adult Education is a seven-course program that provides a comprehensive exploration of topics and skills that can assist instructors who work with mature learners. It is designed for adult educators who instruct in both formal and non-credit environments. The program is built upon the foundation of knowledge and skills developed in the BC Provincial Instructor Diploma Program. Course content includes: education management, professional practice, psychology of the adult, new educational technology, social learning theory, cognitive psychology and the principles of instruction as applied to linguistically diverse student populations.
