Adult Education in Colorado

In an article in the Denver Post on January 3, 2013 reports on the increasing number of adults returning to school.   As part of this trend adult undergraduates are expected to increase by 27% at four-year schools in Colorado.   In addition the state is expanding the use of online courses.   Colorado State University has  established a new campus that is 100% online campus.  The Global campus has regionally accredited programs and more than 7,000 students world wide and an average age of 35.  In 2002 Statistics Canada reported that 4.8 million  adult workers  participated in formal job related training, an increase of 35% compared to 29 per cent in 1997.

I can see this trend continuing into the future which will necessitate an increasing demand for trained adult instructors.Lifelong learning
