Description

To prepare to teach in higher education, you must be aware of best practices that are effective for adult learners in both traditional and online learning environments.

Imagine you are assigned to teach your first higher education course in your chosen content area. To prepare for this course, research instructional best practices and tools you could include in your instruction that are informed by adult learning theories. Create an infographic of research-based best practices and tools that would be effective for teaching adults in your content area. Use a free online infographic maker, such as Piktochart or Infogram. Include the following:

Five research-based best practices that would be effective for teaching adult learners in your content area.

A description of how each practice would be applied in traditional versus online learning environments.

Two research-based instructional tools that would be effective for teaching adults in your content area. Provide an explanation for the instructional tools selected.

A description of how each tool could be implemented in both traditional and online learning environments.

A description of the connection between adult learning theories and best practices in teaching in your content area.

Support your infographic with 2-3 scholarly resources.

Submit the infographic link and scholarly resources to the LMS in a Word document. Ensure that others can access and view the link to your infographic prior to submitting to the LMS.

While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Insufficent (69.00%)
Research-based best practices for teaching adult learners in a
chosen content area are ineffective.
How each practice would be applied in traditional versus
online learning environments is imprecise and/or insufficient.
Research-based instructional tools for teaching adults in a
chosen content area are unfitting and the explanation of the
tools is incomplete.
How each tool could be implemented in traditional and
online learning environments is imprecise and/or insufficient.
The connection between adult learning theories and best
practices in a selected content area is inadequate.
Design detracts from purpose. Text and visuals are too
simplistic, cluttered, or busy. Little to no creativity or
inventiveness is present.
Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede
communication of meaning. Inappropriate word choice or
sentence construction is used.
Documentation of sources is inconsistent or incorrect, as
appropriate to assignment and style, with numerous
formatting errors.
Approaching (74.00%)
Research-based best practices for teaching adult learners in a
chosen content area are weak and lacking detail.
How each practice would be applied in traditional versus
online learning environments is underdeveloped and overly
simplistic.
Research-based instructional tools for teaching adults in a
chosen content area are marginal and the explanation of the
tools is ambiguous.
How each tool could be implemented in traditional and
online learning environments is underdeveloped and overly
simplistic.
The connection between adult learning theories and best
practices in a selected content area is minimal.
Design is fairly clean, with some exceptions. Audience may
not be readily apparent. Visuals do not fully support the
message.
Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the
reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) or word
choice are present. Sentence structure is correct but not
varied.
Sources are documented, as appropriate to assignment and
style, although several minor formatting errors are present.
Acceptable (87.00%)
Research-based best practices for teaching adult learners in a
chosen content area are effective and relevant.
How each practice would be applied in traditional versus
online learning environments is clear and logical
Research-based instructional tools for teaching adults in a
chosen content area are effective and the explanation of the
tools is appropriate for students.
How each tool could be implemented in traditional and
online learning environments is suitable and sound.
The connection between adult learning theories and best
practices in a selected content area is reasonable.
Design is clean and audience is apparent. Purposeful
integration of appropriate objects, charts, and/or graphs
supports the message and enhance the presentation.
Submission includes some mechanical errors, but they do not
hinder comprehension. A variety of effective sentence
structures are used, as well as some practice and contentrelated language.
Sources are documented, as appropriate to assignment and
style, and format is mostly correct.
Target (100.00%)
Research-based best practices effective for teaching adult
learners in a chosen content area are ideal and specific.
How each practice would be applied in traditional versus
online learning environments is specific and thoughtful.
Research-based instructional tools effective for teaching
adults in a chosen content area are ideal and the explanation
of the tools is substantial.
How each tool could be implemented in traditional and
online learning environments is specific and substantial.
The connection between adult learning theories and best
practices in a selected content area is meaningful.
Design is professional, visually appealing and clearly catered
to the audience. Skillful handling of text and visuals creates a
distinctive and effective presentation.
Comments
Submission is virtually free of mechanical errors. Word choice
reflects well-developed use of practice and content-related
language. Sentence structures are varied and engaging.
Sources are completely and correctly documented, as
appropriate to assignment and style, and format is free of
error.
