Great question! Susan Roberts of SCR Consulting has trained thousands of adult educators across the country through engaging in-person workshops and seminars on a variety of adult education practices. Using her knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, she utilizes research-based, practical approaches to introducing the same content effectively in an online environment. Rather than simply reading text on a screen, SCR Academy courses utilize module videos with Susan as your guide as you journey through the content. Project-based learning activities bring the concepts into the classroom with guidance from SCR Academy facilitators along the way.
Upon payment—either by your agency’s provided enrollment key or through credit card—you will be enrolled in the course. You’ll start by taking the pre-assessment—an informal quiz to test your knowledge about the course content. Then, the first module will unlock for you to begin work.
A new module will unlock each week, but only if you have completed the module before it. While the courses are self-paced, your agency and SCR Academy may have parameters in place for a completion timeline. Long periods of inactivity may result in your deactivation from the course.
A certificate of completion will generate when you have completed all course requirements. You must download and/or print the certificate as proof of your completion.
Within the course, navigate to the Technical Support tab on the right side of the screen. Otherwise, you can always email Susan: susan@scr.consulting.
