On-line Training

ACSI Professional Development is accomplished, in part, through our online course offerings. Each course is designed as a practical and highly interactive course for all participants at each course offering. It does not require you to travel or even to connect to a live lecture, but instead uses an asynchronous environment on a Moodle platform to provide quality content in the form of short videos and reading selections to each participant. The courses are greatly enhanced by the participant interaction and peer-learning and teaching as well as the direct application of concepts to the Christian school classroom.

Personalized, Professional, Dynamic, Online Learning Communities
  • Personalized: Studying on your own schedule and focusing on what is important in your school setting
  • Professional: Building on the 4 key skills of 21st Century learning with and from professional educators
  • Dynamic: Enriching your understanding of both content and methods for quality, Christ-centered education
  • Online: Learning together with colleagues in multiple countries and varied educational settings
  • Learning Communities: Ensuring strong group engagement that will continue throughout the course and beyond

Course Catalogue:

New courses are being developed regularly and are organized in the following categories -

  1. Education Courses
    • 3-4 week courses are based on a specific topic related to teaching and require 3-4 hours per week of study
    • The Collaborative Projects course provides guided interaction for development of Project Based Learning activities between cooperating teachers from different schools.
    • 6-8 week courses are also available for more advanced studies
      • We recommend these courses for teachers who have a developed philosophy of Christian Education and online learning strategies.
      • Courses include: 21st Century Skills, Totally Positive Teaching
  2. Bible Courses
    • These courses are developed specifically for study of the Bible but also serve as models for Bible instruction with quality biblical integration applications.
    • Introductory courses include: God's Unfolding Plan (a Bible survey course)
    • Advanced Bible courses will also be available in the future.
  3. Christian Philosophy of Education
    • An intense 10-week course of study which includes the writing a "Philosophy of Christian Education" paper that is required for ACSI teacher certification. It is available to any teacher intent on forming a deeper understanding of Christian Education and begins in early October.

Leadership Courses - primarily for students

  • The Mentoring Emerging Leaders program provides specific training in leadership on many topics. These courses are currently available to high school and college students who are recommended to us by ACSI member schools.
  • The online Student Leadership Course provides a biblical perspective on leadership and can be used as a preparation for or follow-up training after our annual Student Leadership Conference.
  • These courses are currently free of cost for ACSI member schools, but do have other specific requirements for participation.

Study programs:

For those who have had little formal training in Christian Education, we recommend -

  1. The Mission of the Christian School (3 weeks in October)
  2. God's Unfolding Plan (9 weeks beginning in early February)
  3. Impact of the Christian Worldview on Teaching (3 weeks in April)
  4. Further study in the next school year with a focus on Project Based Learning, 21st Century Skills or Biblical Integration

For teachers with a background in Bible study and Christian Education, we recommend -

  • The Philosophy of Christian Education course (if you still need to complete this ACSI requirement)
  • Collaborative Projects or 21st Century Skills (for practical study of current models of teaching and learning)
  • Totally Positive Teaching (for a new perspective on effective classroom management)
