EDUX 7160 The Learning Classroom: Theory Into Practice. Overall, this was a fantastic course, and I have recommended it to my co-teacher. After sharing the information with her that I learned about culture, emotion and social context, she wants to explore the material independently. In her words she wants to take a course for license renewal that will “actually be beneficial” and this course certainly meets that criteria. I enjoyed the self-paced nature and the effective presentation of the material. I appreciated the purposeful assignments as well, which is another reason this course comes highly recommended for other educators. We appreciate the value of being a life-long learner, but also are very busy people with personal lives as well and do not have time or the desire to complete meaningless assignments. Every assignment, article and video for this course was purposeful and well-intended.

EDUX 7817H Number Talks: Whole Number Computation It’s been a long time since I’ve had impactful professional development in the area of mathematics. It opened my eyes to many different things I can incorporate in classroom to make it more fun and easier to manage. It enables students to think conceptually and with an open mind to come up with solutions to math problems in a non-procedural way.

EDUX7590: Educational Leadership. This course thankfully allows me to use my work to get graduate credit in a meaningful way without too much superfluous work and assignments. I searched for low cost graduate level credits and this came up in an internet search. After completing my first CCC course and finding it to be a pleasant experience, this is my 3rd course from CCC.

EDUX 7801 Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. I am very satisfied with this course. It’s flexibility and affordability is invaluable for someone like myself, who works fulltime, is a single-parent and need this type of arrangement in order to pursue salary advancement and additional professional development to further my practice as a special educator. The accessibility to my professor for questions was great and feedback was very timely. I also loved the book selection, as it was current, a best seller and so applicable to the field of Special Education. I would most definitely recommend this course to others.

EDUX7802 GENERAL COMMENT. My coworker told me about this professional development opportunity. She had mentioned that she tried Phoenix online courses but felt that it was expensive for the quality of instruction that she received. She said that she tried this platform and felt that it was helpful for her instruction as well as more cost effective.

EDUX 7300 Physics for the 21st Century I really enjoyed this online course. Many online courses have unnecessary journal posts, extra papers, and reading that does not always pertain to the topic of the course. I found this course excellent. I enjoyed the videos and the supplemental material and text that went alone with each unit on the course website. The content was high level, but easy to understand and make sense of. I honestly enjoyed this course way more than I thought I would.

EDUX7340 The World of Abnormal Psychology. I was very pleased with the scope of topics addressed. I felt that each segment provided me with enough information that I had a rudimentary understanding of the issue addressed, and at the same time we covered enough different concepts that I learned about common conditions that I might see every day as well as more critical ailments. Having so many interview segments brought to life the various conditions in a way that simply would not have been possible by reading some dry textbook. I appreciate that there is an organized, structured component to the course as well as including the more open option to choose resources that catch my interest. The videos covered a broad range of subjects, while the individual component allowed me to study on the specific areas that apply to my situation.

EDUX 7786 Whole Brain Teaching: Multisensory Instruction It is so rewarding to be able to study something I am passionate about and earn units at the same time. I have already recommended this course to many!

EDUX 7819 The Growth Mindset Coach: Empowering Students to Achieve For teachers, the course offers practical methods for engaging students in the curriculum, making lessons more interesting, and designing assessments that provide students with meaningful, motivating feedback. Administrators would benefit from this course as a guide to developing in-service activities for teachers and staff with the goal of creating a positive schoolwide environment where every student feels connected to at least one faculty or staff member. Finally, school counselors and social service professionals are well-placed to provide individual students with direct instruction in identifying and addressing their own fixed-mindset “triggers” that may be contributing to stress, behavior problems, and academic underachievement. The course syllabus also allows for everyone who interacts with students in school to complete additional research specific to their area of expertise and training.

EDUX 7075 Teaching Multicultural Literature: A Workshop for the Middle Grades For many years, I have searched for classes that I could take for professional development that I could actually use in my classroom and school. I am typically left unsatisfied. This time, with this class, I am very excited to return to school full of new ideas for my students.
