Abstract

Adult education is a practice in which adults participate in methodical and organized activities through which they can facilitate their understanding and learning. Throughout the lives of the individuals, they are required to upgrade their knowledge, skills, abilities and aptitude. Hence, the primary objective of this study is to document some of the adult education learning program practices in the Philippine Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and to possibly develop an initial adult education learning toolkit for program implementation. This study used developmental descriptive design with questionnaire and purposive sampling was employed. Focus Group Discussion (FGD) and triangulation has conducted in gathering the qualitative data. There were six participants in the study from private and government HIEs in the country. Results showed that majority of the participants (83%) agreed that the template-based education learning toolkit is most applicable. They believed that this type of toolkit is user-friendly and the most flexible type among toolkits. Participants (100%) agreed that there should be four sections of the learning toolkit, namely: introduction to adult education learning overview; learning objectives; learning/training tools; and assessment and evaluation. It further agreed to consider institutional mission, vision, objectives, and align the learning outcomes to ASEAN 2030, SEAMEO 2021-2030 Priority Areas and the Philippines “Ambisyon 2040”. It concludes that a Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) Model in monitoring and evaluating an adult education program is proposed. Thus, this model will be used for improving the process as well as the crafting of rubric that will help the providers to evaluate the adult education programs implementation.
