discover your value

Discover your value This self-paced course provides participants with the opportunity to explore, assess, and document learning mastered through a variety of life experiences. You will be challenged to think holistically and critically about your skills, knowledge, and performance capabilities as they relate to college-level and professional-based learning. Participants will use social media to build personal learning networks that support collaborative learning and cooperative engagement.  For $150, you may submit your experiential learning portfolio for review at Bellevue University. If the portfolio is awarded at least one credit, you will receive two credits for completion of this course at no extra charge.

 

stats for mere mortals

Statistics in Education for Mere Mortals This short course will provide a hands-on introduction to statistics used in educational research and evaluation. Participants will learn statistical concepts, principles, and procedures by building Excel spreadsheets from scratch in a guided learning approach using short video-based tutorials. The course is designed primarily for two audiences: 1) educational professionals who would like to be more informed about how to compute basic statistics and how to use them intelligently in their work; and 2) first-year doctoral students who want a short and friendly introduction (or brush up) to basic statistics before taking full graduate-level statistics courses. However, this course would be useful to anyone who wants a good, short, hands-on, friendly introduction to the most fundamental ideas of statistics in education.

 

photo and film

Philosophy and Film (Starting July 21st) This class will engage some of the central questions surrounding the human experience through the medium of film. Film is not merely entertainment, but rather culture condensed into artistic works created to reflect both who we are and what we want to be.  Expect to enjoy thinkers such as Aristotle, Marx, and Kant; issues such as “Who am I?” “What is the good life?” and “What is the role of government?” and films such as The Hunger Games, Inception, and District 9. You will become more philosophically, cinematically, and culturally literate after taking this course.

Technology, Statistics, Self Discovery or Philosophy and Film, which of these courses will you add to your To Learn list? Be sure to upload your incredible work as the course progresses to showcase your learning and to perhaps make a new friend or study buddy via the Course Activity & Community! Happy Learning!
