INTRODUCTION TO

MKP ADULT LEARNING

Concepts & Tools for Effective Learning & Teaching

We’re all life-time learners. And we all learn differently.

This three session course will give you an opportunity to explore the basics of Adult Learning concepts with an eye to the methods and practices we use in the ManKind Project’s in-person and online curriculum.

What is the intended outcome of this training?

You will be better at understanding learning styles and techniques in adults. Many of us are wounded by early childhood experiences and don’t have a grasp on basics of learning styles. You will have more skills and competence to address a wide variety of learners and situations. You will be qualified to work more consciously with MKP processes; improve teaching, learning, and facilitation in your circles.
