NCGS is pleased to join Online School for Girls (OSG) in offering the course Single-Gender Education: An Orientation for New Faculty.
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 also explores ways to create a collaborative student-centered learning space, including how technology can help achieve these goals. Ultimately, teachers will gain a clearer understanding of what it means to work in an all-girls school and ways that one can create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn.
Two sessions for summer 2014 are currently scheduled: June 5-July 3 and
July 14-August 8.
