Online Teaching Fundamentals: Designing and Teaching with Returning Adults in Mind, Part 2
Last month I began to discuss adult students who are returning to school to upgrade their qualifications and the things you can do to help them be as successful as possible. Itís always important to help students be successful, of course, but with returning adults, success often seems more elusive for a variety of reasons. They often have a hard time fitting schooling in with other life demands (including family obligations and work). In addition, many adult students are worried about their abilities as students and about learning in an online environment.
