Support the Case for Adult Online Learning
For this assignment, design a persuasive presentation about adult online learning for a group of very traditional faculty, who are in opposition to online learning and have never taught adult learners. These faculty members have several points they assert that you will need to address in your presentation. These points are:
Online learning is inferior to face-to-face learning.
The adult learner doesn’t know what he or she needs; only the faculty member does.
Students are not customers . . . they are students.
There is only one way to teach and one way to learn.
Your presentation must address these points and provide a rebuttal to them. Using learning styles, andragogical principles, and constructivism as explanatory frameworks and citing specific examples, convince this group of faculty by educating them about online learning, adult learning, and learning theory.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate.
Length: 12-15 slides, with a separate reference slide – POWERPOINT
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide – in speaker notes
References: Minimum of three scholarly resources
Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your paper should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
