Course Description

CE Course Description

Many experts believe that factors such as grit, tenacity, and perseverance are essential to an individual’s capacity to strive for and succeed at long-term and higher-order goals, and to persist in the face of the array of challenges and obstacles encountered throughout schooling and life. This intermediate level continuing education course was developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Educational Technology in order to provide conclusions and recommendations on how non-cognitive attributes can be incorporated into formal and non-formal learning environments. Research questions that address theory, measurement, the design of learning settings, and potential new roles for technology in the promotion of non-cognitive factors are discussed.

CE Course Objectives
