The Rutgers online Master of Education in Adult and Continuing Education Program teaches students how to plan, design and lead adult educational experiences while increasing access to educational opportunities and providing improved job prospects for graduates.
The Rutgers University Graduate School of Education is a nationally ranked school of education. We have very high quality research-active faculty. We use state of the art online learning management systems and lastly we have excellent student support services.
We have four key things we try to accomplish in terms of our instructional approach.
The first is that our course work is practical. We want you to learn skills that you can apply and use in your current job or in your future career aspirations.
Our second goal is that there be plenty of social interaction. Though it’s an online program and you might be participating in class in a room by yourself, we try to create learning opportunities so that you’re not actually by yourself. We have small group work, cooperative learning, lots of interaction with students.
The third is faculty engagement. The faculty don’t just set up the courses and disappear. They give regular feedback, they participate in discussions, they are very responsive to answering questions.
The fourth is that we try to practice what we preach. This is a Master’s Degree in Adult and Continuing Education. We’re trying to help our students understand what good adult education practice is and we try to live that out in how we’ve designed the program.
