Bertram L. Scott/Elizabeth A. Fender Distinguished Lecture

In this highly interactive introduction to Innovative Strategies for Facilitating Adult Learning, facilitators Bruce Williams and Jim Kelly will model strategies that encourage and enhance student engagement in learning. These strategies are transferrable to any on-site learning setting, including higher education, business and community-based organizations. If you are interested in innovative ways to re-energize your teaching and facilitation and communicate content beyond the traditional lecture format, this session is for you!

This session will also provide a lively preview of the August 7th and 8th Adult Learning Innovation Institute, led by the facilitators.
