WOW! Thank you for these constructive ed2go classes. I have been an adult education teacher for over three years now, and between Teaching Adult Learners and The Creative Classroom, I feel as if almost everything I learned fit into these courses!
The classes were concise and directly focused on issues raised in the classroom. The teachers were our biggest cheerleaders; they wanted their students to succeed. Both of my instructors reached out to support each student. Quizzes, discussion boards, and prompt replies to emails made the class feel warm and welcoming. The format of the online learning platform was quick to pick up and easy to follow. Also, the teachers made an effort to humanize the experience, which was greatly appreciated.
These courses have inspired me all over again to focus on my goals of becoming a more effective and compelling teacher. As I teach math to adults, this goal is vital to my students’ success. Learning how adult student goals differ from younger students and how to improve retention by encouraging and expanding on creativity, facilitated a more conducive learning environment. This, in turn, helped me to see areas in my daily work life where I can improve. Tasks and assignments directly related to content and worked well in the classroom.
Not only was I impressed with the professional development instruction I received, but also the vast array of additional classes was impressive. Classes in accounting, legal issues, technology, and business, among many others, made me want to take more! For the cost of one class, I was surprised at the amount of information received. I believe this is an outstanding opportunity to learn new skills, in a variety of exciting areas. ed2go classes help inspire you to do more and be more. Taking these classes gets you one step closer to your next dream!
Thank you for hosting these excellent courses, and I look forward to more in the future.
