This course will explore the ways in which chronic stress, trauma, and adverse life experiences affect learning. It will also introduce some teaching approaches and strategies that promote emotional and psychological well-being to help students learn more efficiently. We will look at our roles as educators in helping learners practice healthy coping skills, develop supports, and connect to community resources. In addition, we will explore the value of expressive arts as a way to build community, encourage creative imagination, and enhance mental health for adult learners.

“I was very excited when I enrolled in this course as I wanted to get a grip on the stress in my life as well as my students’ lives. I was surprised by all of the different ways to help alleviate the stresses. This course gave me some peace and my fellow students provided great insights for me to ponder. The best piece is I was able to communicate better and problem solve with my peers.”  Jim Hirshouer, Cochise College, AZ

Research suggests that math topics, including algebra, should be taught at all levels, not just for passing high school equivalency tests. In this course, you’ll learn how to introduce algebraic reasoning to your students, and you’ll experiment with strategies for teaching numeric patterns, relationships, and functions based on realā€life situations. You’ll also explore strategies to help students model quantitative relationships using graphs, tables, words, and equations. Finally, you'll use the College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRS) Mathematical Standards and Practices to enhance the focus, rigor, and coherence of algebraic reasoning in your instruction.

Many educators created projects as students or have had their own students do projects for their classes. This course is intended for anyone who wants to refresh their understanding of project-based learning (PBL) and use new technologies and approaches in their teaching. Using a blending learning approach with project-based learning allows teachers to introduce their classes to problem-solving tasks, enhance learners’ critical thinking, and improve students’ research and communication skill, leveraging both face-to-face and online learning options.

If you enjoy learning in a collaborative, virtual environment, consider this highly interactive course. Come learn new instructional approaches and technologies, while developing your own project by course end.
