Reflective Practice in Correctional Education

This course is designed to be offered asynchronous.  It is also designed to challenge the correctional educator to explore the philosophic foundations of correctional education; to develop a personal philosophy of correctional education; and, then to use this self-knowledge to implement reflective practice in their correctional classrooms.   The course is divided into five sections:

           1) What is the Purpose of Correctional Education?

           2)  What is the Role of the Teacher?

           3)  What is the Nature of the Learner?

           4)  What does Learning Look Like?

           5)  What in the Manner of Instruction?

The course is $547 and 3 semester hours of GRADUATE level credit are available through Ashland University, a fully accredited institution.
