On-Demand Training
Providing quality tutor training is a key goal of tutoring centers. What does quality training accomplish? It enables tutors to effectively help their tutees succeed. In some cases, it also meets the demands of program certification requirements. These are critical goals, yet the reality is that day-to-day demands of many tutoring coordinators limit their availability to conduct real-time tutor training sessions. Compounding the trainer’s hectic schedule is that tutors are equally as busy balancing school and outside commitments. In addition, tutors are often hired throughout the semester, which further complicates scheduling issues.

Capture Creativity: Developing & Teaching New Skills For Today’s Students
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Never before has this statement been more true or relevant. As Keeling articulated in Learning Reconsidered, “Knowledge is no longer a scarce or stable commodity.” Educators are working to make the shift from a model in which they possess the information and transfer it to others to one where students must use what they learn to make new discoveries and innovations. As Walter Fisher wrote, “We are using technologies that haven’t been invented yet to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” All of this will require a new skill in today’s educators: the ability to teach students to develop creativity in themselves. Perhaps this is why Bloom’s Taxonomy of higher order thinking skills was recently revised to place creativity at the apex of the triangle.

Beyond the MOOC Hype: Definitions, Tips, Benefits & Challenges
Complimentary Webinar

On-Demand Training
Much ado has been made about Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) over the past year, but little has been shared about how community colleges can make the most of them. Generally, MOOCs are considered to be classes delivered online and available to thousands of students at a time, usually for free and for no credit. They incorporate principles from several learning theories, such as large group instruction, collaborative learning, and peer-to-peer learning. However, MOOCs offered through elite universities such as edX, Udacity, and Coursera differ from typical online courses in significant ways. Most notably, MOOCs have served as a catalyst for challenging traditional lecture-based and textbook-centric instruction and revitalizing credit-by-examination efforts.
