For those who were not able to join the summer sessions, NCGS and Online School for Girls (OSG) have added a fall session for the course Single-Gender Education: An Orientation for New Faculty, which will be offered October 14-November 10, 2014.
In order for newly hired faculty to succeed at their first single-gender school, we believe it is necessary to provide them with approaches to teaching and learning that are most effective for girls.
This four-week long online course allows newly hired teachers to connect and collaborate with each other to explore the possible implications of research on the classroom environment. The course is ideal for new teachers unfamiliar with the unique skill set associated with teaching in an all-girls school and helps acclimate these teachers to the style of learning that helps girls learn best.
