Very Good Book

I graduated a couple of years ago with my masters in Instructional Technology. This was a required book in one of my last classes. It is a great book that I continue to refer to when planning training programs. This book is definitely worth the money.

Planning Programs for Adult Learners

It is a very useful book especially if you're starting from scratch to design any programs.

very timely delivery

very timely delivery. product came just in time. Thank you.

Helpful for all the details

If you are looking for a book to teach you how to teach, this ain't it. But if you are looking for something comprehensive that discusses all the many aspects one must consider to plan and execute a quality program, this is a gem. If you do much sponsoring of programs and events, you know it is the little things that can ruin your day: the air conditioner is not working, you did not adequately budget for the materials needed, you did not anticipate the needs of the participants, etc. This helps prevent geting blindsided. I refer to this frequently when preparing workshops and programs, and recommend it to others.

A Must for Adult Education Coordinators

This book covers all the aspects of adult education program planning. Though, most of the information seems common sense, it is this straight-forward writing that makes this book such a fantastic reference. I continually refer back to the book when developing my adult ed programs to make sure I'm not missing anything. The information covered in each chapter is a great overview and provides insight to program development. I recommend for more specific information on a particular chapter to seek out other resources that go more in depth. Overall, it is a great guide to successful program planning.
