Adult Learning Module 1: Delivery Skills

Adult Learning Modules

These classes help trainers meet the 12 hours of training about adult learning required for trainer approval in Minnesota. You must complete both Adult Learning Modules 1 and 2 to meet this requirement. For more information about trainer approval requirements, see the Trainer Approval Process Guide.

Both modules include self-paced online coursework and Zoom meeting sessions. TARSS uses a learning management system called Canvas where participants can access all the module materials.

Adult Learning Module 1: Delivery Skills

  • Blended online design: readings, discussion boards, and reflection assignments with a live Zoom session
  • 8 clock hours Develop-approved
  • You will receive emailed instructions for logging in a few days before the training begins from either Karen Anderson at ander352@umn.edu or the TARSS team at tarss@umn.edu. Please make sure those senders are on your safe list or check your spam folder.

In this module, participants will become well equipped to deliver pre-designed curriculums. The module discusses trainer competencies, adult learning basics, and facilitation skills. It also considers the impact of culture, communication, and presence on training effectiveness. The module design also includes a Personal Development Plan (PDP) built into each section to enhance the transfer of learning and encourage self-reflection.

Students will complete activities and assignments each week as well as attend a weekly live Zoom session. Activities include readings, videos, discussion board, and reflections.
