ASCD Courses - Some General Guidelines

Hello again!

I hope most of you will be enrolled in your ASCD course of choice over the next few days. A few tips/reminders/guidelines...

  • The website for logging into the course is http://lms.ascd.org
  • Please complete enrollment and start with the course by the end of this week. I have adminstrator privileges - which enables me to track progress of the students in this group. [I see all of you at 0% right now.]
  • ASCD makes the course open to you for six months, i.e. your login and access to the course will be valid for 6 months.
  • However, our internal PPSE timeline dictates a deadline of end-of-July for completion of the course, with a request to front-load your work so that the bulk of your course requirements are not left to the end since we'd like your 12-lesson planning to also be done by end of July.
  • Please remember to download and print the course materials and readings. This will allow you to access the material at your leisure even after you are "done" with the course, and sharing of the materials among your PPSE cohort as well as the Aditi community at large. We request you to create a binder of all the course material.
  • Time management - Based on discussions I have had with a few fo you on this subject, I suggest that you track closely how long it takes you to complete your first lesson. Use that as a guideline to manage your time for the remainder of the lessons i.e. speed up, if necessary.
  • Since you will have access to the course even after our PPSE deadline for completion, you could use the extra time later to go back to the course and add reflections to the journal or do anything else you wish for your own learning and development - PPSE does not require or mandate this, however.

I hope you have fun on this online learning journey. We look forward to your feedback (later).

Cheers // Shuchi
