Our programs incorporate the scientific principles of human learning into our instructional design. Learning is active, engaging, collaborative, and application-based. Invigorate your lesson planning with science-based tools that will enable your students to master what you teach. Carefully designed program elements and ongoing guidance and support empowers educators and students to apply what they've learned.
Evidence-based Instructional Design
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 quizzes and open-ended interrogatories are used to get learners to think about the subject matter they are about to learn.
To foster durable, flexible, and enduring learning, we apply retrieval strategies throughout the program, including elaboration, spacing, self-testing, and interleaving.
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.
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.
Coaching and collaboration sessions will be held during the program to allow participants to clarify any questions about the program content.
Customized Programs for Partner Organizations
Our programs consist of a mix of self-led asynchronous e-learning, which are complemented with live
synchronous group collaboration, assignments and application hours to support participants. We maintain a pace suitable to each partner organization to be in sync with each other to promote meaningful peer discussion and collaboration and to benefit from scheduled office hours.
