Atomic Learning is constantly adding new learning resources focused on helping colleges and universities tackle common challenges found in education today. Recently, we connected with Sarah Holder, Product Owner (aka eLearning Guru) here at Atomic Learning, for her top five new courses.
Without further ado, here’s her picks:
- Learning Styles
Learning Styles can be a great building block to developing a study strategy. To help you get started, will dive into the benefits of styles, the characteristics of each, and determine which Learning Style works for you. Additionally, we'll provide some study techniques for each style, along with some tools that might be useful.
- Critical Thinking
Provide students the opportunity to build and apply critical thinking skills, as well as critically evaluate circumstances and performance. During this course, students will practice questioning and evaluating to form judgments and make decisions, as well as learn how to interpret alternative viewpoints and reflect on their own biases and assumptions.
- Multiple Intelligences
The theory of Multiple Intelligences, by Howard Gardner, defines intelligence as the ability to solve problems and create products that are valued in specific cultural settings, and notes that every person possesses several different and independent competencies. In this module, we'll discuss the Four Premises of Multiple Intelligences Theory, as well as take a look at each of the intelligences and practical applications for instruction.
- Every Professor is a Teacher of Reading
In this online course, Dr. Theresa Kiley, an author and expert in school leadership, discusses the history of reading instruction, educational reform, what it means to be fluent, and addresses how instructors can assist students who struggle to read in college. Kiley details different theories and strategies that instructors can implement to boost students' self-confidence and reading skill level.
- Socratic Seminars
This online training covers the ins and outs of Socratic Seminars, an ancient practice that allows students to take ownership of a topic and delve deeply into complex texts. In it, you will learn the basics of how to make a Socratic seminar run smoothly and leave with the tools to start implementing them in your classes.
