Please read the expectations for both teachers and students.
- Fostering learning is the goal
- Always remember that the reason you’re presenting to your students is to enrich their lives by sharing your skills.
- Make it interesting and unique
- Keep your class titles and content compelling. If you’re taking on a tried-and-true subject, find a new and unique angle through which you can explore.
- Be organized, use a lesson plan
- Your students will learn best when you have a well thought-out approach to teaching your class. Don’t wing it. If you need any help in assembling a lesson plan, check out the teacher resource guide.
- Don’t teach students how to do anything illegal, or unethical
- Be respectful in class
- While we encourage you to be an active participant, leave the floor open to other students in your class so that they can get involved too. Be courteous when others are talking. And always show up on time.
- Get involved in the learning process
- Be active in discussions, ask questions, and be sure to let the teacher know your learning goals. Your involvement supports your learning as well as the learning of those around you.
- If you feel like a class you attended wasn’t what you expected, or you didn’t learn what was promised, we recommend you first try to work it out with the teacher. Be respectful, but straightforward in explaining your issue. If you can’t come to an agreement, reach out to us and we’ll see how we can help.
- Pursue lifelong learning
- Our goal is to create a community that allows you to learn how to live the healthiest lifestyles. Take advantage of it!
