Our instructors act as facilitators of knowledge, supporting active learning through questioning and encouraging students to reach understanding independently. Students engage in lessons on their own time or through scheduled virtual meetings, and receive encouragement and helpful instructor feedback in regular check-ins as they progress through the course.
Our instructors support learning strategies that help students master course concepts, including peer reviews, concept mapping, and learning through hands-on activities. Instructors also provide students with robust, useful feedback, and identify misconceptions or gaps in understanding to promote mastery.
Our instructors give students room to explore, make mistakes, and learn from these mistakes to gain a stronger understanding. The freedom and flexibility of learning virtually also provides students with the opportunity to try a variety of subjects taught in different formats, and to choose the type of exploration that works best for them.
