How will you learn at Hartwell?

“Complete Immersion” is the best way to describe your transformational experience with Hartwell.

What is “Complete Immersion?”

At Hartwell University, we’ve believe that using Bloom’s Taxonomy plus two additional factors (Wisdom & Faith) is the best of method to ensure a complete and thorough immersion in a topic.

You will have the opportunity to:

  1. Remember content that you’ve read, researched, listened to and/or watched on video
  2. Understand the uses of this content and knowledge
  3. Apply those uses to your own teaching and if you are a paraprofessional, you’ll be able to instruct your K12 students in this content as well.
  4. Analyze the use of the course content and examine potential impacts on your teaching
  5. Evaluate and validate your knowledge on the topic by serving as an instructional coach to classmates in their delivery of their knowledge.
  6. Create additional applications and uses for your new knowledge.
  7. Discern how this knowledge will improve your performance as an educator.
  8. Connect your faith and biblical truth to the implications and use of this knowledge.

Since Hartwell expects its students to be working on a K12 campus, you’ll have the opportunity to observe other teachers leading their classes in the content area.  You will also have the opportunity to lead K12 students in learning the same content you are acquiring.  When you deliver instruction to K12 students, you’ll have the opportunity to receive specific feedback using a Hartwell instructional rubric so that you can constantly grow through actionable guidance.

  • Learn by being an Instructional Coach
  • Learn by observing Classroom Teachers
  • Learn through small group discussions with peer future teachers
  • Learn by reflecting on your own experiences
