Real learning takes place after the class is over and when the participant tests new ideas in the workplace. This webinar will include results collected from the June 19th webinar and discussion about successes and failures of adult education principles in law libraries and related institutions. Learn what it takes to improve teaching and delivery to create dynamic learning experiences and impact results.  Highlights include real life applications of participation, contextual learning, accommodating different learning styles and the need for practical standards.

You will learn how to:

Apply the theory of adult education in real classrooms.
Weigh the pros and cons of different methods.
Develop a “toolbox” of responses when trusted classroom methods fail.
