Graduate School of Education Leading, Learning, Life-Changing Developmental Perspectives on Adult Learning EPFA 520 CRN: 11214 Fall 2008; 4 credits WELCOME! Welcome to EPFA 520, Developmental Perspectives on Adult Learning. This is one of the core classes in the EPFA department. As such, it is one of those classes you “have to take”. But I hope it becomes more than that through our study together. I think you will find the content to be thought-provoking. I always find that I learn about myself and my own developmental processes each time I teach the course. And the more I come to know and understand myself, the better I am prepared to help others do the same in the context of adult learning. My hope is that you will realize the same benefits. I look forward to learning with you. INSTRUCTOR INFORMATION Instructor: Dr. Andy Job, Ed.D. Telephone: (503) 725-4606 E-mail: ajob@pdx.edu NOTE: I always acknowledge emails.
