The design and delivery of effective engineering education to diverse cohorts of adult learners is challenging. The sheer volume and diversity of published literature relating to the scholarship of teaching and learning presents a challenge to teaching practitioners. A design and development framework that incorporates key principles from the literature can aid practitioners (particularly those new to teaching) in the effective design and delivery of technical courses. This paper presents a research-based framework that has been applied successfully to the design and delivery of a number of technical courses involving different cohorts of adult learners.
