More than a third of today’s college students are over age 25, and there are millions of Americans who have earned some college credit but no degree. That means there’s a huge population of current and potential adult learners out there seeking higher education that serves their needs.

Colleges and companies are trying to figure out how to attract and educate older students who have family responsibilities, full-time jobs and financial aid restrictions. This requires more research and creativity than simply marketing pre-existing programs to grown-ups. Indeed, a 2019 report from the U.S. Department of Education concluded that adult learners need their own edtech tools instead of being expected to learn from the same resources designed for children and teens.

How are institutions experimenting to provide effective adult education? What kinds of program delivery, assessments, advising and partnerships are working?

Join EdSurge and Meg Benke, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at SUNY Empire State, for this live online discussion.
