Date: March 8, 2012. Join Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal for a one-hour online workshop to learn about the distinct learning needs and learning styles of adults.
Has this ever happened to you? It was your turn to lead the catechetical session for your initiation process. You gave a stellar presentation on the distinctions between sanctifying and actual grace. You used an animated PowerPoint; you provided a step-by-step handout. You even managed to inject a little humor.
Then, at the end of your 45 minutes, you asked if there are any questions. And…nothing. Crickets chirped quietly outside the classroom window.
Did they get it? Did they understand what you were telling them? Will it make any difference in their lives? How do you know? How do you know if you are having any impact at all on the faith lives of the catechumens?
When it comes to teaching adults, we have to switch gears. Adults have distinct learning needs and learning styles. In this 60-minute online workshop, Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal will explore:
- Why using an adult-learning model is essential for catechumenate formation
- What adult learning looks like
- How to lead a catechetical session using adult learning methods
- What the impact of an adult learning process might be for your parish
