Your Learning Journey
Once you have registered in Park University’s M.Ed. in Adult Education Program, you will receive login details to access the following information and resources:
Park e-Classroom & Mobile Learning
Each complete course is available to you via the Park University e-course system. All of the learning information and activities are available in the class and are divided into 8 weeks per course. Furthermore, Park has free ‘apps’ that will allow you to access material for your course via your mobile device, for ultimate ease of use and flexibility.
Multimedia Learning Modules
Content is shared and organized in customized multimedia modules. These modules allow you to access information at your convenience and to review modules that include audio, video, interaction, and exchange.
Participants in the program are literally dispersed across the globe and have the opportunity to connect through Park’s videoconferencing options. Live, synchronous, multi-party videoconferencing enables team project work, discussions, polling, Q & A with your professors, and recording of the live meeting for later review.
Electronic Resources, Databases & ePortfolio
You will have access to Park University’s expansive online repository of electronic texts, articles, industry reports, and third-party databases of information. This information can be used to shape your assigned activities and your professional work. Furthermore, you can customize your own portfolio to illustrate your specialization and competencies in the workplace.
All courses in the program are designed to emphasize and integrate four learning dimensions, as operationally defined below:
- Knowledge - Awareness: that which is familiar; significant and specific content (in the practice and profession of adult education).
- Collaboration - Working jointly toward knowledge sharing; interaction, exchange, peer review.
- Application - Integration and demonstration of knowledge in the context of practice.
- Synthesis - Analyzing and fusing disparate parts into a coherent, complex, and new entity.
All four elements will be evident in each course of the program.
