Hello Everyone, Thank you for another terrific discussion this week! I’m really enjoying your conversation about the pros and cons about professionalizing a field such as adult education. I think you’re doing great job thinking through some of the complex issues around certification and creating a code of ethics and really who has the final say in what the overarching rules and policies of a field should be. In addition, I am appreciating your beginning posts about the extra chapters that you read last week during about the knowledge society, and about future movements in adult education. This week the discussion is terrific and it is one of our last discussions about theoretical issues related to adult education and historical issues related to adult education. From here were moving to the actual practice of adult education. At this point, you should be working on preparing your micro-teaching lesson plan. In the introduction course we try to touch on all aspects of the Adult Education program (that you’ll cover in much more detail in the other courses throughout the master’s degree program) including the actual teaching of adults. So you will have an opportunity to create a micro-teaching lesson plan and to teach that lesson to your peers during the final week of this course. Please as always feel free to post any questions or concerns about the assignment guidelines on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board or you can email me questions directly through the send mail function on Blackboard. This week we have our final education autobiography personal journal entry due. We are wrapping up all of work on our educational autobiography and in doing so I’ve asked you to reflect back on all of you previous personal journal entries to really find out what you have learned about what it means to be an adult educator through this journaling process. I am really looking forward to reading your personal journals this week. As always they are due by the end of the day on Saturday. Right now, I am finishing up my office hours on Tuesday. I do have office hours on Wednesday as well from 8am to 12pm and I will have those same office hours throughout the rest of the semester. If those office hours don’t work for you please send me a note so we can find an alternative time to meet. Thanks again for all of your hard work everyone I look forward to the rest of our discussion it is open until 10pm on Wednesday. Have a great week!

The Manny vs. Bradley Recap including the undercard. Breakdown of the fight and some other news in boxing involving heavyweights and trash talk.
This mini case study is based on research of an International provider of Adult Education. Hi Everyone, this is Amanda Gonter. “It takes the brain six minutes to die once oxygen is cut off. It can take a person as little as five minutes to bleed to death. Bones that are not set, may never hold weight. Cuts that are not cleaned can become infected. In the minutes after a trauma, how the body is treated can make a world of difference to the outcome, and time is of the essence” (Kathleen Northridge). St. John Ambulance, “believes that it’s absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it” (“About us”, 2012). St. John Ambulance is an organization and charity that provides adults, and even high school students, of any race or gender with the essential knowledge, skills, and training to perform first aid and CPR in emergency situations. St. John Ambulance is a form of nonformal education supported by local communities located in London, England. The overall mission of St. John Ambulance is to “provide an effective and efficient charitable first aid service to local communities, to give training and products to satisfy first aid and related health and safety needs for all of society, and to encourage personal development for individuals through training and by membership of our organization” (“Vision”, 2012). Nonformal Education similar to St. John Ambulance is also found in the United States. The Amercian Red Cross is non-profit organization that offers a variety of instructional courses catered to the field of medical emergencies and situations. The American Red Cross, mission statement states, “The emergency responder. The lifeguard at your local pool. A trusted babysitter. Each year, an average of more than 9 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies through American Red Cross training classes, including First Aid, AED and CPR training. Get engaged. Get certified. Get inspired - while learning an important new skill, you’re in the right place” (“Workplaces”, 2014). Both St. John Ambulance and The American Red Cross provide effective courses regarding health and safety and almost mirror one another. Although, I did notice some differences, for instance, St. John Ambulance offered unique certifications such as fire marshal training, stress management, and moving and handling (teaching individuals to lift properly in the workplace) while The American Red Cross offered training in disaster relief, and lifeguarding. Specifically regarding First Aid, the course duration was quite different, as mentioned previously, St. John Ambulance’s session was three days and The American Red Cross was only two to five hours. The courses are also broken down differently for instance the material covered in First Aid at St. John Ambulance, might be covered in CPR and AED in the American Red Cross. Honestly, I was quite surprised to find that my particular International Adult Education choice to be almost parallel with one of the American providers of a similar program. I found this mini case study to be very informative.
