All Kinds of News for December 01, 2015
Susan Kologi, Ph.D. joins the Novitas Academy team as our new Academic Director and teacher. Susan recently completed her Ph.D. from the University of Idaho, where she previously worked with undergraduate students studying to become teachers. Her research focused on using project-based learning in the classroom as an alternative to traditional lecture with different types of learners.
Dr. Kologi brings some new, fun and exciting academic additions to the Novitas curriculum! Each course features connections to the Common Core State Standards, integration of technology via Chromebooks, and lessons using project-based learning. Project-based learning is a type of instruction that allows students to be active in their learning by making decisions, researching, collaborating, and participating in real-life simulations.
“I’m very excited and honored to be a part of the Novitas team. I’m happy to be able to put my fingerprint on a new, innovative, and creative way to educate our students and each other. One of my favorite parts is that I am able to transfer my previous knowledge and experiences to a new setting. I get to use what I know to help train teachers, motivate students, and to learn more for myself. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together in the next year!”, said Dr. Kologi.
Welcome Dr. Susan!
