Supporting education and innovation.
Teaching with the Brain in Mind
We place a strong focus on training teachers about the brain, how it develops and changes over time and how to best prepare the child's brain for school and learning.
With this knowledge, our teachers will learn to increase student engagement through skills that incorporate dynamic physical classroom environments for optimal learning, plans that consider the mind-body link as well as the the importance of play, and activities that help students manage stress, peer pressure, and bond more quickly with fellow learners.
The projected outcome for our teachers is the ability to create classrooms that emphasize brain-based teaching, social and emotional development, critical thinking skills, and intrinsic student motivation.
On-site Residential Instruction, Lectures and Seminars
Hope College's Unique On-site Residential School extends the traditional 2-week study period for distance learners to 3 weeks allowing for a more in-depth study of the course material and longer preparation for class assignments.
