Graduate Programme in Adult Learning

Graduate Programme in Adult Learning

The Master in Adult Learning (MATLG) is a professional learning pathway that aims to prepare adult learning professionals for this fast-evolving environment. It also aims to provide career transition, or extension, opportunities for adult learning professionals. MATLG is designed with a two-fold purpose; Firstly, to prepare learners with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in teaching, assessing, and designing courses for adult learners with an imperative focus on the use of contemporary educational technology. Secondly, to provide learners with critical and philosophical thinking skills that are imperative for critiquing approaches to adult learning from its socio-political contexts, in order to design insightful, meaningful and rigorous learning experiences for adult learners. MATLG is taught by experienced academics and attracts a diverse group of learners who are interested in, and concerned with, adult learning in formal education, continuing and lifelong learning, and workplace learning.
