Although students’ motivations for obtaining their HSEs are varied, one of the most common questions they ask when first starting their educational journey is “how long is this going to take?” As adult educators, we must help our students find the balance between getting it done quickly and getting it done well. We can achieve this by helping our students set realistic and achievable goals and walking alongside them throughout the process. In this webinar, we will discuss goal setting and retention strategies that can help guide students through their HSE journey.
