Identify Major Learning Goals:
To explain four easy steps to teaching adults
Target Student Population:
Faculty who teach adults
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
It has nice pictures.
The page is very busy and the content is very simplistically presented. There is a lack of fundamentals.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
There are really good ideas about teaching adults embedded in the slides. The material has outstanding features. It is a basic teaching material.
It really isn't a teaching tool for anyone but those teaching adults. It would be bad to follow this as an example of an effective way to teach. 70 slides are a lot. The material is too superficial.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
It is point and click.
It seems like there are a lot of slides. No deficiencies in usability. It has weaknesses in design.
Other Issues and Comments:
The slides are embedded in a page of other possible learning opportunities so it is hard to focus on the slides.
