Program Elements

Program Elements

This program is not designed to be learned passively. Instead, we ensure your mastery and application of the content you learn through a carefully designed set of elements that promote active learning as we provide ongoing guidance and support.

COGx Program Leaders

Program Leaders are assigned to support your learning journey. They monitor the Program and respond to your questions. You can also contact your Program Leader using the Inbox section in the left-most navigation menu.

Priming Activities

Priming quizzes and open-ended interrogatories are used to get learners to think about the subject matter they are about to learn.

Retrieval Practice

To foster durable, flexible, and enduring learning, we apply retrieval strategies throughout the program, including elaboration, spacing, self-testing, and interleaving.

Video Micro-Lessons

Introductory video lessons are delivered by Program Leaders, while topics within each module are delivered by subject matter experts.

Classroom Application Guides

Takeaway posters are provided throughout the modules to guide the effective implementation of the concepts covered.

Peer-Based Feedback & Reflection

Learners receive and provide peers with anonymized feedback on lesson plan application assignments for deeper learning.

Discussion Boards

Each module ends with a Discussion Forum, which we highly encourage you to participate in with your peers. This is a chance to share ideas, collaborate, and provide and receive valuable peer feedback.

Alumni Practitioner’s Platform

Program alumni (Science of Learning Practitioners) can join an online platform to share resources and strategies for ongoing application of concepts and guidance.

Application Hour

Coaching and collaboration sessions will be held during the program to allow participants to clarify any questions about the program content.
