Instructional Methods
The instructional methods will use the adult learning theory approach.  Education-based and competency-based learning, in particular, must acknowledge and account for the characteristics of adult learners and the learning strategies that work best with adults.  Adult learners expect, and deserve, to leave the experience with competencies that can directly and immediately be applied on the job.  In the case of education opportunities, participants must be able to recognize and use the competencies in real job situations.  Simulations and role-play rank high among the most useful learning techniques for emphasizing a “training-in-context” concept, where the learning environment approximates the workplace environment in as many contextual ways as possible.  This is characteristic at all levels within the organization.  And, by using this approach, students will be confident in the use of their newly acquired skills and competencies on the job.
Course Delivery Approach
The course delivery approach in one of blended learning encompassing a combination of online presentation, self-paced activities, (e.g., reading and completing activities), discussions, and interactive questions and answers.  The activities include both individual and team exercises.
