Facilitation of Adult Learning


This institute builds the capacity of individuals to design and lead adult learning experiences within their school, district or organization. The curriculum helps participants establish learning communities by modeling and advocating collaboration, shared decision making, team learning, calculated risk taking and problem solving. The skills and tools participants learn through this training will aid them in developing agendas and leading professional development, meetings or other adult learning activities.


This institute is open to any educator who conducts adult learning. Participants include teachers, principals, instructional facilitators, curriculum coordinators/specialists and program directors.

Length of Institute

Two days residential – one session held in the fall and spring


The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, Morrilton


We are able to partially fund this program, but it will require additional financial commitment on the part of the school or district. There is a $500 institute fee per person to help defray the cost of materials and lodging.
