Teaching Adult Students Online


Throughout my career in information technology I have witnessed a transformation in how conglomerates hire, train, and share information. Gone are the days of on-site interviews, face-to-face staff meetings, and in-house corporate training. Those changes have been motivated by advancements in technology, and this steady pace of change only appears to be accelerating. Employees are expected to learn new innovations and associated processes, and management must also adopt new ways to share knowledge and retrain staff to stay competitive. However, corporations are not the only entities facing the challenges that come with the progression of technology; academic institutions are also exploring innovations and developing strategies to help faculty become more effective and technology-savvy instructors.

While pursuing a PhD in information technology education, one of my professors advised her students to keep a journal of learning objectives and research findings throughout their educational journeys. These personal journals would become valuable references to them once they commenced on their own journeys to teach higher education courses online. As a result, I began to observe similar teaching fundamentals in corporate and academia. Teaching Adult Students Online: a Corporate Geek Girl’s Journal will highlight key areas to consider throughout your journey teaching adults online. Whether we like it or not, our world is becoming more virtualized, and as technology continues to evolve, so will the ways in which we learn, teach, and do business.

Teaching Adult Students Online: A Corporate Geek Girl’s Journal (Paperback version, 162 pages, ISBN-10: 1507632142; eBook Version, ISBN-13: 978-1507632147) will provide you with some key elements to consider while teaching adult students online.
