Message from the Dean, Faculty of Education
The Master of Education in Adult Education is aimed at anyone involved in supporting, developing and providing adult education and training, whether in a voluntary or professional capacity. The program will be of interest to you if you are concerned with your own development as a lifelong learner and will present you with the opportunity to widen your knowledge and understanding of current issues in this field as it is designed to offer opportunities for critical debate and reflection on theory and practice perspectives in adult education.
The program is aimed at education professionals who support, improve or manage adult learning in the workplace, the community, colleges and universities, and training organizations. It is designed to meet the needs of those employed as: teachers, professors, staff developers or learning support staff; trainers, designers or managers of training; community developers and educators.
Our current students work with adult learners in a variety of contexts including: formal learning in post-secondary education, career colleges, literacy and second language programs, workplace and human resource development, health, mental health and rehabilitation programs, community development, and the vast range of informal learning activities and programs engaged in by individuals and groups.
You will find more information about individual courses on our website and I look forward to meeting on.
Rita Kop, Ph. D.
