You will learn specific competencies that will be demonstrated throughout the certificate program. These competencies include developing and evaluating appropriate teaching practices, identifying education policies to assist in developing language proficiency, identifying the role of language and culture, and developing the ability to compare and contrast sociological, psychological, and physiological factors that characterize adult populations.
