We recognize the challenges of fitting learning opportunities into your busy lives so an online program may be your best option. However, not all online programs are created equal. Designing an exceptional program specifically for online delivery takes a team of talented professionals; key among that team is the instructional designer.
Instructional designers have a solid foundation and understanding of adult learning theory, digital space, teaching and learning, and technology. The best instructional designers make learning online not just instructional but meaningful – and we have some of the finest instructional designers in the country.
All of the Positive Psychology and Positive Education modules are administered online and are asynchronous – you are able to work through the material at your own pace but are requested to keep up on a weekly basis. The amount of time required online will vary with each course but we recommend budgeting seven to 10 hours per week to start and then adjust from there.
Laurier offers more than 200 online courses; we understand teaching and learning in a digital space and ensure you have multiple ways in which to interact with the learning materials.
Our award-winning instructional design team, collaborating with our subject-matter expert and academic review committee, use innovative instructional strategies to ensure your learning experience is exceptional.
Even our most extroverted students have been thrilled with the level of engagement, sharing, bonding and fun they are having. The “lively discussions” with “insightful and supportive” peers, with feedback from our instructors that’s “personal and meaningful,”
“My journey through this course has helped me better roll with the stresses of my days, added a greater sense of meaning to the work I do, built social capital between my staff and I, and provided me with dozens of tips and frameworks that I can share with my patients. Highlights of the program include fantastic instructors, lively discussion with peers, and course content that you can actually use! No matter what you do for work, or what you're studying in school, this course will be transformative. You won't regret it!”
