The Right Course Format for Your Learning Style

Online Courses

For the Tech Savvy Crew

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.

Feedback

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