ESL 7636 - Course Design for Adult ESL Classes

Adult learners come to educational programs for a variety of reasons: some need basic skills or English for the workplace; some are seeking a GED/high school equivalency; others plan to study in a community college or university. In this course, participants explore the principles of needs assessment and course design and learn tools to develop courses tailored to students’ language and learning needs. They create curricula and materials for use in their own programs that prepare adults for the demands of the 21st century.

Target audience: ABE teachers and adult ESL teachers

Credits: 2
