BEd in Adult Education

You are part of our very diverse student community at the Centre for Adult Education and Community Outreach (CAECO).

Your personal, professional and educational background is essential to enriching the learning experience for you and others in our degree and certificate programs. CAECO is a community of learners who share a passion for teaching and training adults and who believe in the importance of lifelong learning.

You are involved in a very rigorous program of study that involves five Adult Education core courses that focus on all facets of adult education – theories, practice, contexts, instructional design, delivery methods, leadership, gender issues, and power relationships.

Those pursuing a degree also must meet requirements for context courses and electives – the number of courses you need to complete will depend on any advanced standing you may have received for your previous education and training.

We understand that you have a busy life – a full-time job, family commitments, volunteer activities and more. Can you do it all? Most definitely.

It will take hard work and dedication on your part. Whether you just received your acceptance or are mid-way through your studies or perhaps within a term or two of graduation – we are here to help you succeed each step of the way.
