There are no prerequisites for any of the adult learning certificate program courses, and there is no specific order in which the courses must be completed. However, it is strongly recommended that students complete EDACE 790 - Characteristics of the Adult Learner prior to EDACE 847 - Adult Learning and Motivation. Courses are offered on a rotation basis. Students may take courses in the order that works best for them.

Course Delivery

All coursework is offered at a distance via K-State Online, the course management system at K-State. Classes are made up of readings, videos, discussion boards and other online learning activities. Classes vary in format. Students may work on group projects using appropriate digital media tools or work independently, sharing comments and questions via K-State Online.

Courses are delivered on an eight-week time frame. This allows students to complete two courses each fall and spring while only concentrating on one course at a time. Courses offered during the summer semester are seven weeks, allowing students to complete two courses during the semester without overlap.
