The online landscape is constantly changing. TLC’s publications join dozens of other organizations who have provided industry-specific content online for adult educators: FREE! Our curricula curate the best of those free industry resources into structured sets of lessons specifically for non-traditional adult learners.

  • interactive learning activities, and
  • adaptive practice.

Your students will leave your classes more confident and job-ready. You will leave this webinar with practical content that you can incorporate in your instruction right away.

We will also discuss some paid resources currently used by adult educators for contextualized instruction. Consider how to evaluate (and calculate!) the added value of paid content, and learn how to save your program time & money.
