In this comprehensive resource, Raymond J. Wlodkowski and Margery B. Ginsberg describe how to meet the challenge of teaching intensive and accelerated courses to nontraditional learners and working adults. By making motivation and cultural relevance essential to instruction, they clearly show what instructors can do to enhance learning in classes that can last from three to six hours. Teaching Intensive and Accelerated Courses makes full use of the authors' twenty years of experience researching and teaching accelerated courses, along with selected strategies from Wlodkowski's classic Enhancing Adult Motivation to Learn, to offer tried-and-true practices instructors can use to provide continuously engaging learning. Praise for Teaching Intensive and Accelerated Courses "Part-time teachers who work in accelerated degree programs are an enormous—and grossly underserved—group of adult education faculty. In this indispensable text, Wlodkowski and Ginsberg, two teachers with extensive firsthand experience of accelerated learning formats, provide an accessible, practical, and highly readable guide to engaging learners in these programs. Warm, wise, and down-to-earth, this will be an invaluable resource for teachers in these programs and for faculty developers everywhere."—Stephen D. Brookfield, Distinguished University Professor, University of St. Thomas, Minnesota "Whether you are an experienced teacher of accelerated courses or about to become a new one, I can't think of a better guide and standard-setter than this book. Wlodkowski and Ginsberg have created an instructional theory with practices that mirror the very principles and processes they advocate. Central to their thesis is the need to create conditions that will allow adults' natural desire to learn to emerge; in my view, this perspective is often lost in adult learning courses in the name of efficiency or productivity. That is one of the many reasons this book is refreshing in both its approach and the values it espouses."—Pamela Tate, president and CEO, The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning "What a helpful resource for faculty professional development! The information is strategic without being formulaic. New faculty can use this book as a resource to design their materials and to use their existing skills to help adults learn. The parts of this book that focus on graduate students are extremely insightful."—Victoria Gardner, director, Office of Multicultural Affairs, University of Washington School of Medicine

For many organizations, recruiting and maintaining a core group of dedicated volunteers spells the difference between success and failure. But very little research has been done to find out what motivates people to volunteer, how to recruit volunteers, and how to nurture their dedication. Enhancing the Volunteer Experience reveals, from the perspective of the volunteer, how management can foster – or impede – the growth of high-quality, long-lived volunteer programs, and how to ensure that volunteering remains a dynamic force that generates social change. Drawing on a four-year study of volunteers in a variety of fields and extensive interviews with 180 people, Ilsey provides nonprofit managers with the insights, skills, and strategies they need to recruit and retain committed volunteers, and to make the volunteer experience rich, rewarding, and productive.
