Conference Presentation


The Annual State of the Discipline Lecture: Adult Education-Plenary Session. Presented at the Annual Conference of the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Universities. Virginia Beach, VA.


This presentation is designed to facilitate participants in creating an active learning environment in the classroom. More specifically, by drawing on both theory and practice from the academic discipline of adult education, the session seeks to introduce participants to the dialogic approach to teaching and learning and show how that approach can be effectively implemented in both formal (e.g. graduate, undergraduate, seminary, etc.) and non-formal learning environments.
