Online PD: Science of Learning for Educators
Developing Sophisticated Learners is a comprehensive online 12 module program with synchronous and asynchronous elements that distills the science of learning for educators while ensuring a meaningful impact in the classroom. Expert facilitators provide educators guidance and feedback on application while they work alongside a community of peers that collaborate to share resources and insights.
The course is led by 12 world renowned learning scientists and subject matter experts. Upon completion of the course educators will be able to develop self-directed learners who understand the architecture of human learning and memory; have mastered evidence-based techniques and strategies to learn; and can monitor and control their own learning.
- Schools experience meaningful increases in academic performance and reduced failure rates
Educators teach with a deeper understanding of how their students learn, while applying proven strategies to enhance learning outcomes
Students develop into more confident and independent lifelong learners
We also offer the following four online programs, which are asynchronous and derived from the curriculum of the Developing Sophisticated Learners course and modules:
COGx is the finest example I’ve encountered of cutting edge research applied to educational methodology. All educators should be required to learn effective strategies to develop the foundational cognitive skills students need to engage in the critical thinking and creative problem solving that 21st century education demands.
As an educator, I am responsible for teaching students. Yet, in my own education and training to become a teacher I wasn’t prepared to succeed as a teacher because my own learning didn’t include any training on the science of human learning. COGx closes this gap for educators and does so effectively.
Nothing else we have tried has delivered the kind of results COGx delivered to improve learning for our students.
