The Right Course Format for Your Learning Style

Online Courses

Engaging & Relevant Courses from the Comfort of Your Home

Most courses include a hard copy course text(s) containing a combination of practical strategies, methods and research-based theory for classroom teaching. Learners Edge works to use the most applicable and popular texts in the field. All 3 credit courses include the following sections:

  • Read and Respond: Each course uses a study guide with questions aligned with the readings.
  • Reflection Requirement: Every 3-credit course has a Reflection Requirement that is a minimum of 2 pages long. The Reflection Requirement allows you to deepen your learning on the topic, and to explore related issues.
  • Resource Requirement: An opportunity to customize your learning by finding and summarizing current articles and blog posts that support the content of your course.
  • Application Requirements: Applications are designed to be relevant and useful to teachers in their classrooms, so each course requires that you create something applicable to your teaching situation.

Course Materials

  • The Online Format is infused with multi-media clips to enhance learning, with all materials (including the syllabus) online.


  • For online courses, evaluator feedback is given after each module submission (3 Modules for a 3 credit course).

Blended Learning

For Those that Like a Little of Both - Self-Paced & Synchronous

Are you the kind of person who likes to have an accountability partner? Does the thought of self-paced learning intrigue you, but honestly, it's helpful to have a little nudge every now and again? Let us introduce you to Blended Learning! A mix of self-paced (asynchronous) and instructor-led (synchronous) learning in the Learners Edge online environment. 

We are currently offering two blended learning courses:

Course Description:
Finding balance in our teaching lives is critical for a successful classroom career. How can we maintain a strong commitment to our profession while also finding the time and energy required to be happy outside of the school day? This course will answer these questions and will get teachers moving, creating, and thinking about all the ways to maintain a balanced approach--in school, and out. We will work to achieve balance and wellness through a Bob Ross-inspired art session, a Top-Chef cooking competition, and a Line Dancing lesson!

Course Description:
Stories of students and teachers seeking to be positive forces for good are the inspiration for this exciting new course in this challenging year, 2020. Teachers will become part of the phenomenon of positivity through the development of a "Posi-Plan" designed to spread kindness and to wipe out negativity. At the end of the course, educators will join in a community activity designed to spread goodwill. Oh, what a feeling! Join us!

Hours Only Professional Development

Hours, PDPs, CEUs - Time to Relicense or Recertify!

Learners Edge has worked with teachers across the country to help them relicense and recertify. If you are looking for applicable, online learning that will provide you with a Learners Edge Letter of Completion and 10 hours of professional development, these courses are the perfect fit. We offer nearly two dozen online professional development courses that you can take from the comfort and coziness of your own home and keep ahead of that recertification deadline.
