Online Classes:

An online class is an excellent way to provide in-depth professional development that allows teachers to read, reflect, discuss and implement over a period of six weeks. The schedule is flexible - participants log on 3 times a week at times that are convenient. Both courses provide a  focus on the brain science, the research-based strategies and the development of an action plan. As a stand-alone experience or as an extension to your on-site workshop, the online class will push implementation to a new all-time level.

 

 


 

The online class is helpful for:
• Schools who want to provide a learning opportunity that spans several weeks to enhance learning.
• Individual educators who want to learn on their own.
• Schools/districts without professional development days.
• Schools/districts who want to extend the on-site workshop.
• Schools/districts who want to provide "new hires" or others with the PD that they have missed.
 

Here's what you need to know:
• Classes are generally offered in January and September each year and at additional times, upon request; Private classes can be offered at any time for groups of 10 or more.
• The class is six weeks long and allow educators to learn with and from fellow educators from around the world who are also passionate about brain-based, gender-differentiated education.

• The online course is relevant for classroom teachers, building/district administrators, and related service providers.
• The cost is $199 per person. Discounts offered for early registration, groups, and previous workshop clients.
• Participants should purchase their own copy of the class text prior to the start of class. Amazon.com is a great source.
• 3 hours of graduate-level college credit is available at an additional cost.

Curious about what K-12 educators from around the globe have to say about Kelley's online class? Read On!


It was so great to do this as a school. I'm so glad that we were able to go deeper into these topics and share what we are trying in our classrooms. We were able to hear what others are doing which was nice because we don't get a chance to share with each other very often. Thank you so much Kelley!

I am challenged by the ideas both in the text and presentations but also by my fellow teachers in this class. It is exciting to know that there is indeed something new under the sun. I like the idea that you can go online, read an entry and then, as early as the next class day, start to implement the suggestions given!

Kelley, I absolutely loved the topic and the understanding I gained through your questions. There were many times I felt so enlightened by the process of examining my experiences and digging deeper into the content.

The subject matter is part of what made this class such an excellent choice. As a current classroom teacher, I cannot afford to miss a chance to better reach all learners in my class. This course provided down-to-earth, real-life information that I can use immediately. The online discussions were good – I appreciate the feedback and answers to my questions, as well as new ideas to try.

I think the course was thought-provoking, worth my time, money, and effort. It challenged me to think about my classroom in ways I wouldn’t have been able to do independently, and it gave me practical ideas and strategies to use in my classroom. I have already recommended this course to fellow colleagues and I think it was a great learning experience for new teachers.


I truly hate to see this course finish up! So many opportunities for learning have presented themselves through readings and great interaction with others. I loved the forum for this course and really believe we just got going, lots more to say!

This course provided great opportunities to directly use the information within the classroom while taking the course. There were a number of great hands-on, ready to use ideas. I loved the option to share materials, videos, etc. Thank you for the energy that this class brought to my teaching.

I found this course to be extremely helpful in providing me with language and scientific data which helped me better understand phenomena I have perceived in classrooms and in working with students for many years.

The course has been very informative – confirming some of my beliefs but surprising me with data that dramatically changed my ideas about how an adolescent brain works. The scientific evidence was so convincing that it has forever changed how I will conduct my classes. Kelley, you have given us great feedback and guidance. Thank you for all your efforts – I’m sure that our students (present and future) will be much the richer for all of your leadership.
