At the conclusion of this course you will be able to effectively demonstrate observable habits associated with each of the EE skills, through the design, development, and delivery of empowered educational programs (a single course and a 3-hour workshop).

Each module will be released on a Monday, giving you the remainder of the week to go through all the video content and learning exercises. There will be two weekly calls – Tuesday at XXX and Thursday at XXX – and you can choose the best call time that works for your schedule over the 6-week course schedule. The live call will take place at XX ET. If you can’t make the call live, it will be recorded and shared with you afterward to download.

Here’s what the course schedule looks like:

  • Week 1 – Synchronous: FOCUS: Introduction, Course Set-Up, Design Principles
  • Week 2 – Self-Paced: FOCUS: Course Development
  • Week 3 – Synchronous: DELIVERABLE: Course Plan + Video, Feedback on Design, Development & Delivery

Live calls will all be done through ZOOM. You’ll receive an email from us every week with the link to log on to that week’s call.

Course Completion and Certification After the last day of your session, you’ll retain access to all online course materials for as long as you like. Once all modules and assessments have been completed, you’ll receive a Leading Movement Explorations digital certificate of completion.

To view video content, all you need is a device (desktop, laptop, tablet, phone) connected to the internet. If you are on mobile, we suggest connecting to WiFi to avoid data overage and sluggish video streaming.

You will have access to the video content forever and the downloadable resources are all yours to keep.

We’ve included learning prompts and checks for understanding throughout each module. Underneath the video window for each lesson, you’ll see a list of questions. You’ll be asked to answer the questions in succession throughout the video, as they each relate to the content being taught on screen. Once you complete an answer be sure to click “Save My Workbook”. This workbook can be downloaded as a PDF at the completion of each video.

At the end of some modules, we’ll present you with a culminating assessment. These assignments are meant to get you thinking for yourself, using the course content as a resource to expand your understanding and apply it to your own practice or teaching. Assessments will be reviewed by your peers and Cecily.

While the physical activity in this training will be presented with the best of intentions, injuries may result, discomfort may occur or prior conditions may be aggravated.

If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, i.e. low blood pressure, heart condition, or previous, current or chronic injuries, please consult with your doctor before engaging in any of the physical activity that is demonstrated.

An important part of the learning experience is the community of peers you will be building. At the end of each lesson, we’ll prompt you to visit the PRIVATE SOMEPLACE CHANNEL. This space will be a hotbed of dialogue. It’s the place to discuss course materials, concepts and teaching techniques relevant to what you’re seeing here. Post questions, answer questions and share your experiences.
