A) Courses are delivered online with multimedia coursework that includes a wide variety of teaching resources, media and activities. Each course includes videos of best classroom practice, available on your desktop, showing effective strategies in action. You’ll also see expert commentary focusing on both the theory and practice of real teachers in real classrooms, student work samples illustrating the effectiveness of strategies and practical activities to implement in your own classroom right away.
Course assignments require that you collaborate with other teachers. You select whether to complete the program in either an online discussion format or a face-to-face study team cohort format. All course assignments are submitted online.
If you select the online discussion format, you will be assigned to an online cohort of 12-15 teachers. You will complete the collaboration assignments via online discussion boards that you can access at your convenience throughout each week. You will have deadlines during the week to post and respond to the online discussion board. The online
format provides the opportunity to interact with educators from across the country and a variety of grade levels.
