While I am hopeful that you will choose to meaningfully participate in the entire course - especially if you plan to use the curriculum in your classroom - I have created three different participation minimums based on college credit levels.
For 1 credit, you must complete 100% of the course, which includes watching all videos and reading all lectures. You must also respond to all discussions marked with a 👩🏻🏫 💭.
For 2 credits, in addition to the above requirements, you must also participate meaningfully in each discussion marked with a 🧠✏️.
For 3 credits, you must complete the above requirements as well as submit your own capstone project (marked with a 🧠 🎓) of your experience working through the Building NeuroResilience Guidebook.
Keep in mind, MNU also offers Application and Impact level credits, which would be applicable to your completion of this course as you begin to use the course materials with your students.
When you have completed the course, you will submit a form to request the college credit reflection documents. Your reflection will be due to MidAmerica Nazarene seven days after you receive the email containing the enrollment details. Please note, that there is no flexibility in this process, submissions later than seven days after the end date will not be accepted by the college.
Below are the required reflection questions you will be asked to submit to MNU:
- Describe the key content presented in the workshop.
- Explain why this information is important to the field of education.
- Explain the potential impact this methodology, philosophy, information, or the influence it will have on students and/or communities.
- If you are or were a classroom teacher or specialist, articulate how you will implement this new knowledge in the classroom. For teachers, lesson plans are acceptable in this section. If you are an administrator, describe how this new information will impact your building or learning community.
