Teaching Skills that Matter in Adult Education
Did you ever wonder how enhancing the effectiveness of adult education could happen? Teaching Skills That Matter (TSTM) in Adult Education is a professional development project of the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (OCTAE) which combines evidence-based materials in five content focus areas of critical importance in adults’ lives. This project will identify, discuss and explore focus areas, teaching approaches and skills needed for our students. A critical component of the TSTM project is the Toolkit. Be ready to take away instructional examples, templates and tools that will have a positive impact on students’ lives
