Facilitating Adult Learning in a Virtual Environment

We live in a world that is profoundly shaped by the digital environment. Moreover, with the evolution of society and technology, people expect to access content in virtual spaces. We have now reached a point in history when it’s a necessity to become proficient at creating and delivering compelling digital content and facilitate learning in virtual spaces—although most feel unprepared to do so.

This practical, evidence-based workshop provides a foundation on how to educate and engage adults with digital opportunities. Utilizing an energetic, participatory format, this workshop will help attendees understand what motivates adults to learn, how to excel as a presenter and facilitator of learning, and best practices for creating and delivering dynamic content.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain familiarity with the pillars of adult learning, including how to engage audiences through effective facilitation exercises.
  • Understand the skills and talents needed to be an engaging presenter and effective facilitator, including practical tips on how present your “best self” online.
  • Discover many tools and resources to effectively engage audiences in both synchronous (live) and asynchronous (self-directed) formats.

This is a 2-hour 16-minute video of the class Instructed by Katie Sandoe, originally held during the 2021 PROP Conference as Certification Class 420.


You will receive 0.25 CEUs or 2.5 hours of CEUs toward your 3.00 CEUs or 30 hours required to be re-certified every 3 years. You will also receive 0.25 CEUs or 2.5 hours of credit toward your specialization in Recycling Education.

After you have finished watching this class you are required to send an email to [email protected] stating you have completed the class and are requesting to have your transcript updated to include this class.

Let's Talk About - Rubber-Modified Asphalt (RMA)

Virtual Workshop - Thursday, December 8th - 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Every year almost 300 million scrap tires are generated in the United States. One of the most beneficial uses involves producing Ground Tire Rubber (GTR) from scrap tires and using the GTR to create Rubber-Modified Asphalt (RMA). RMA has been used in the U.S. since the 1960s, but extensive market adoption is yet to occur, although the use of rubber-modified asphalt has increased by approximately 50% since 2017. Depending on the application, one lane mile can use up to 2,000 scrap tires.

On December 8 from 1-4 pm ET, join the Northeast Recycling Coalition, the Northeast Waste Management Officials Association, and the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association as they host a webinar to discuss the performance, economic and environmental benefits of using rubber-modified asphalt. This workshop will:

  • Inform decision-makers of the current status of this technology
  • Discuss barriers to its use and the opportunities to overcome them, including lack of specifications, lack of experience in market and how state DOT’s can change regulations to allow the use of rubber modified asphalt
