“When a task is given in school, why does one student take thirty minutes to complete it and another only eight minutes?”

Type of course: Self-Study

Course Description:

We all know brain plays a major role in learning, but few are aware of how. In a class where each child differs in his ability to learn, it is essential that educators know how the brain is related to the process of learning, in order to help facilitate student performance. Such knowledge will also give the educator an advantage when faced with the challenge of teaching a child with special needs.This is a two part integrated course that will equip educators with an extensive knowledge about the process of learning, as well as illustrate this in the case of autism spectrum disorders.

The first section,Introduction to Autism will help understand more about learning challenges in this special group and provide educators with useful information to enable them help these children face their key challenges in social,communication and learning issues.

Thus completion of this course will help teachers gain confidence in accommodating and teaching all kind of learners.

    I see I have to spend 5 hours discussing/practicing, but I'm a substitute teacher, so I don't really have colleagues to discuss with. Apart from peer discussion boards, which you don't have, I have no way to attain these five hours.

    Cognitive Skills was an excellent and timely course. As a Special Education teacher with 17 successful years of teaching experience, I found the course engaging, flowing with content new to me, and exactly what I needed in the the areas of cognition. Bravo to Dr. Ken Gibson!! We need more academics like this. Dr. Gibson is down-to-earth, authoritative, and funny. I could listen to him all day.

  70. River K. says:

    This option makes it possible to conveniently accrue needed pd credits when needed. The content was really strong, it was a much better training than I had anticipated. Even though I have been exposed to these topics and concepts previously, it reminded me of things I had forgotten and deepened my knowledge about these things, in addition to giving me new tools to use and making me think about ways I could apply it to improve my teaching and learning practice.
