1. Disadvantages of Taking Exams for Credit
Taking exams for credit can be a disadvantage to many students. To decide if taking exams for credit is right for you, you need to consider your own educational and life goals and how these exams will help or hinder those goals.
2. Understanding the Baby Boomer Student
Baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1964 and adopted their name because more babies were born in the year 1946 than ever before. This was a result of couples postponing marriage and childbirth during the Great Depression and World War II.
3. Understanding the Generation X Student
Generation X, commonly referred to as Gen-X, the Pacman Generation, Millennials, or the post-baby boomer generation, were born between 1961 and 1981. Generation X is smaller in population than the baby boomer generation but is considered to be better educated and more ethnically diverse.
4. The Self-Directed Distance Learner
Have you ever heard of Self-Directed Learning? If you have ever participated in a distance learning program, then you might be familiar with self-directed learning.
5. Distance Learning Student Motivation
Staying focused on your degree is a great way to maintain motivation, but with all the stresses and distractions surrounding you on a daily basis, keeping focused on what needs to be done is not always an easy task.
6. Writing a Thesis for an Essay
An important part of an essay is the thesis. Write your thesis keeping these points in mind so that it will guide both you and your readers through your argument on the topic.
7. Smart Foods for Brain Health
There is an old saying: “You are what you eat.” What exactly does that mean? You might just as easily say the opposite: “You are what you don’t eat.” There are differences between the types of foods you eat to provide energy to the body and the foods you eat to provide energy to the brain.
8. Does Social Media Enhance Learning?
Today, learning is dependent on the use of portable technology, mobile devices, and social media. The idea of student-centered pedagogy is to provide an environment students are familiar with and thrive in.
9. Exams for Credit
In another article I discussed what the CLEP examinations are. However, there are other exams available which can also give you some credits that may be accepted by your college or university. Here is information about 2 of them that are widely accepted by many universities and colleges.
10. Online Instructor - Job Interviews
Today, teaching qualifications at the university level are becoming more demanding, as candidates selected are expected to hold a PhD in addition to years of teaching experience. However, with persistence and dedication to achieving your passion, you will eventually get your foot in the door.
