IFD166 – Teach Adults (updated course)
Course Dates: October 23 – November 3, 2017
If you’ve ever wanted to improve your ability to guide adult learners through their faith development, this two-week interactive Discipleship Ministries-approved Lay Servant course is the way to do it! Learn about Multiple Intelligences, Adult Faith Development, Learning Hooks, and more! Students will need the book Start Here, by Barbara Bruce, and should read it before the course begins.
In the first week, participants will look at the context and setting of teaching – elements like the Role of the Teacher, Influential Factors, etc. In the second week, participants will explore the process of teaching (elements like Teaching Methods, Creating a Teaching Session Plan, etc.) and write their own Mission Statement for teaching.
This version of this workshop does not require participants to record a teaching session video. Contact hours are earned through daily posting to the Discussion Board. If you have questions, please email the course leader.
This course has been approved by Discipleship Ministries (formerly the General Board of Discipleship) as an advanced course in Lay Servant Ministries and qualifies for 10 contact house for Lay Speakers (equivalent 1 CEU).
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.

“This workshop confirmed some of my techniques of teaching learned over the years in public school, private tutoring and bible study facilitating. This workshop also added new (and probably better) techniques to try and a greater understanding of how the adult mind works.”
