5 Reasons Educators Should Sign Up for Teaching for a Positive Future

We at IHE believe that at its core, education is about helping students become leaders and changemakers for a healthy, just, compassionate world. Teaching for a Positive Future, our six-week online course for educators, is designed to help educators do just that. Countless educators, from classroom teachers to community activists, have told us how valuable the course has been in helping them connect with their vision of education and their desire to nurture a generation of solutionaries. Here are 5 reasons we think educators should sign up for Teaching for a Positive Future:

  1. It's Flexible, Relevant & Online. Since the course is online, you can take it from wherever you live, and the flexible curriculum means you can customize it to best fit your situation and needs. And what could be more relevant than exploring the most pressing global issues of our time?

  2. You'll connect. Teaching for a Positive future gives you six weeks to nurture deep connections with other teachers who share your passion for creating a better world through education, and with whom you can share ideas, gain new insights, and learn new strategies during the course and beyond. Our Online Commons (the discussion forum) is one of the most valuable aspects of the course.

  3. You Get 2 for 1. Our bonus exercises and resources mean that you basically get two courses for the price of one. The bonus packet includes 20 additional exercises and several additional resources to help you extend your learning and continue to integrate humane education into your work and life. The bonus packet is only available to participants of Teaching for a Positive Future.

  4. The Course Instructor Has Education in Her Blood. Course instructor, Marsha Rakestraw, comes from a long line of teachers and has been an educator at the PreK-graduate levels, having taught a variety of subjects in a variety of settings. Some of her worst and best experiences have occurred while as a student and a teacher, and she passionately believes in the power of education to change the world.

  5. You Can Earn CEUs. Further your professional development credits by earning 4.5 Continuing Education Credits (CEUS) through the University of Maine (which are often applicable to other states).

Teaching for a Positive Future is also a great way to refresh and reinvigorate your teaching soul. We invite you to sign up now for our next session (July 11-August 19.)

Please help us spread the word about Teaching for a Positive Future. Share this post with friends, family, colleagues, and educators whom you think would benefit from our online course. Thank you!
