Research shows that maintaining high retention rates in distance learning education is a challenge. There are various tools and resources available web-based tools that can help identify at-risk students and measure and boost opportunities for growth and success. Students can take advantage of these resources to prepare ahead of time to ensure a "SMART" start and successful completion of their online course work.
First we will review SmarterMeasure to identify attributes, skills and knowledge and assess competencies necessary for successful distance learning and help identify potential resources to help maximize efficiency in potentially deficient areas.
Then we will review SMARThinking that helps educational institutions offer students outstanding academic support through a network of professionally certified educators focused on increasing student achievement and enhance learning.
This group project is designed for international students to research into topics related to the theme of success in graduate school and give a presentation to their classmates on their topic, preferably teaching the class on that topic but also engaging the class in the lesson. Students will also listen intently as their classmates present and critique some presentations formally. The instructor usually offers the students a variety of topics but groups can propose other topics to the instructor for his/her approval.

This lesson takes the learner through a series of exercises where the ability to understand ratios and calculate unit cost will help the learner make optimal, well-reasoned, cost-effective purchasing decisions. The target audience is the adult learner (preferably with school-age children) working in the Grade D range (6th-8th grade) and with RP Domain (Ratios and Proportional Relationships). Learners will benefit by seeing the relationship that mathematical concepts have to their everyday lives by using mathematical reasoning to make better purchasing decisions. Mastery of this material will help learners demonstrate readiness for higher-level algebraic concepts.
This four-part module has been developed as an initial component developed to prepare leaders of K-12 professional development to engage in independent study and initial exploration of culturally responsive teaching, the NGSS shifts, and relevant connections between NGSS and Common Core. This is part of a larger equity-focused professional development program designed for K-12 facilitators of NGSS working in throughout the rural areas of Oregon.It will take approximately 2 hours to complete and brings together many already developed resources in new ways. Module A is the introductory module for the Oregon Science Project NGSS Learning Facilitator Program. An Oregon Science Project Digital Badge is available for anyone who completes this module.If you have any feedback please email ctrecha at oregonscienceproject.org
