The Coming Tsunami of Adult Learners: WHO

Posted by Edvance360 on Feb 8, 2019 10:02:00 AM

In a previous post, we interviewed Professor Stephen Higgins in preparation for ABHE 2018, a smaller accrediting body specifically for Bible colleges and seminaries. His unique perspective on adult learners comes from his varied background teaching adult learners and leading schools that appeal to adult learners, but his predictions are of interest to anyone who deals with adult learners. The timing is significant for two reasons:

1) Growing popularity of smaller or "boutique" accrediting bodies (such as ABHE or NCCET) and micro-credentialing vs. regional accrediting bodies (SACS COC or HLC),  and

2) Warning signs that a convergence of outside forces and student-led demands may be loosed on current forms of post-secondary education, affecting not only Higher Education but also corporate learning environments.

We will explore this topic - and how Edvance360 LMS is uniquely poised to assist our clients to serve these adult learners - in the next several blogs.
