DLI Webinar- Adult and Working Learners in the UNC System- Beyond “Non-Traditional” presented by Eric Fotheringham, Ph.D., UNC System Office

September 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

The UNC System has been intensely focused on serving adult and working learners for a number of years.  We are collaborating with all 16 universities and national foundations, statewide endowments, political leadership, and community colleges to increase equitable outcomes for this particular student population.  With all we have learned and developed about adult and working learners, there are two key areas of emphasis moving forward for the UNC System: (1) Increase university capacity to serve adult learners to sustain and support adult learners while enrolled and (2) Increase adult learner enrollment by supporting adult re-enrollment and outreach projects.  This discussion will focus on what is happening across the system to engage and re-engage adults and working learners and the key role of technology and digital learning in these efforts.
