FAPSC December eCourse Now Posted

Learning Theory and Practice

This course covers the different ways individuals learn and apply new knowledge. We start by covering the steps the brain goes through as it processes new information, and how knowledge is stored and retrieved. We then discuss how intelligence is measured and how learners process information through the use of multiple intelligences. Moving from theory to practice, the course shows instructors how to use the learning needs of students to increase knowledge acquisition and retention. The course includes a number of easy to implement strategies to help students retain and use new content.

This is a facilitated online course providing 4 hours of continuing education credit.

Free Tutorial of the Month

How To Delegate Effectively

Delegation is about empowering employees to act and make decisions. When you delegate, you are assigning authority, responsibility, and accountability. Managers and supervisors who delegate effectively will always accomplish more than those who try to do all-important activities themselves. This tutorial discusses the important steps required for effective delegation.

This is a FREE online tutorial sponsored by FAPSC.
