What does the latest in neuroscience tell us about the short-term and long-term effects on neurology and behavior?

Love them or hate them, watching movies/ playing games allow us to learn at light-speed. That means, using them as a tool in teaching is a no-brainer. Every day we see how the medium dictates what we believe and how it influences behavior for better and for worse. Our future is dependent upon the “viewers” learning how to verify accuracy, and the future of learning depends upon the willingness to harness what engages. I don’t like that this is better than traditional, but if we use it they get it faster we we maximize instruction time. Writing, reading, math, speaking using games/TV/movie/documentary could revolutionize learning!

Step 1: Getting Started

Pick the class that’s right for you. Each class comes with step-by-step directions including: 1) How to watch or attend class, 2) Completing all course requirements, 3) Registering with the University of your choice, and 4) Requesting transcripts.

Step 2: Completing Class

Watch the online lectures or attend class in-person, then begin independent application. Keep a reflection and log the hours spent applying this content, then submit to us by email. 3-credit classes require 45 hours of engagement, 1 credit classes require 15 hours of engagement (including class time).

Step 3: Receiving Credit

After submitting independent application, within 5-7 days, you will receive a confirmation email that your grade has been entered with the university of your choice. You will then be able to request transcripts. Transcript delivery is generally 5-7 days and is available for expidite.

“You said this during class and it really stuck with me because I am FINALLY learning in this past year or so that: “I am worth staying charged”. I was taught as a kid to feel guilty for resting, for taking time for me. I was also taught that working super hard is where we get our value – unfortunately through our deeds, not our beautiful existence. As I drove home yesterday and was going to cancel my workout because I needed to do xyz other thing, I immediately told myself that I’m worth it. That it’s okay to take 30 minutes, feel better/stronger/happier and THEN get things accomplished.”
 
“Your classes are always so actionable, packed with takeaways. Thank you for helping to revitalize my energy at the end of a busy school year. Perfect timing!”
 
“Thanks again for helping me remember that I’m in charge of what makes me happy and how to stay healthy”
