With the winter holidays drawing near and January just on the horizon, it is a great time to recognize the tremendous value of professional development (PD) in reigniting our passion for teaching and fostering fresh beginnings. PD plays a crucial role in enhancing educators’ knowledge and skills, ultimately leading to improved student outcomes. It revitalizes our attitudes and beliefs, and has the potential to seismically shift how we approach our work. Therefore, as we set our sights on the new year ahead, let’s prioritize PD to ensure that we are equipped with the best tools and strategies to support our students’ success.

This month, our team was excited to launch five new self-study courses designed to provide participants with professional learning that is purposeful and transferable, all while keeping in mind the busy schedule of an educational professional. Registration is now open for the following courses: 

  • Implementing Effective One-to-One Learning Conversations 
  • Understanding & Supporting Neurodivergent Learners 
  • Understanding & Supporting Social and Emotional Learning 
  • Understanding & Supporting Executive Functions 
  • Measuring Your Impact

Each asynchronous, self-study course addresses a single conceptual strand, exploring key educational practices and enhancing the participant’s understanding of how to incorporate the MARIO for Me software and The MARIO Approach intervention within their unique context. These courses require, on-average, 10 hours to complete, and each module includes robust content, comprehension checkpoints, and reflection prompts that allow each participant to connect the content of the module with their personal experience. In addition to the primary content, each course includes resource packages which enhance the participants’ readiness to transfer their learning into action. These resource packages include tools that can be used immediately, case studies that put the content into a context, and research summaries that facilitate the implementation of the science of learning and wellbeing as it relates to the highlighted strand. Enrollment operates on a rolling-basis and participants are given one year to complete the course. Click here to start your learning journey today! 

Additional self-study courses will continue to be added as we expand our course offerings. Reserve your spot for the following self-study courses launching in 2024: 

  • Communicating Effectively with Parents
  • Implementing Highly Effective Learning Strategies
  • Developing Self-Directed Learners 
  • Innovating & Iterating Your Classroom with Design Thinking
  • Improving Academic Outcomes

We wish you all a joyful year of learning and hope you take the opportunity to refresh your practice and reignite your love of teaching with MARIO Education. 

All the best,

Taryn and Erin
