Adult Learning and Development
Program Overview

Professor Catherine Hansman
Professor Catherine Hansman Ph.D

Learning is a life-long process. Today’s rapidly changing and technological world requires adults to learn new ways of doing their jobs or to change careers several times throughout their lives. This new reality requires adults to return to educational institutions for classes, to partake in job related training and development, and to attend continuing professional education seminars to achieve new career goals. The influx of adult learners into adult education venues has resulted in a demand for qualified adult educators to assist adult learners as they cope with the effects of an ever-changing world.
