全球在线学院 Courses & 老师
学生 take GOA courses for credit at Columbus Academy. GOA course workload and course intensity is equivalent to courses taken on our campus. Unlike many online courses, students are not passive receptors of pre-recorded lectures from their teachers. 而不是, students collaborate on challenging and engaging projects with students from around the world. 的y are also expected to manage their workload and time effectively to support the asynchronous nature of the courses. GOA classes are teacher-paced, meaning students are assigned work throughout the week rather than given assignments to complete over a large block of time. GOA maintains excellence through rigorous teacher training, building on the best practices and values of leading independent schools - and by ensuring classrooms stay at a small size (limited to 20 students) that fosters strong teacher-student relationships and student-to-student collaboration and interaction in real time.
With 全球在线学院, teachers and students can share their voice on a global stage, improving learning and enabling the pursuit of individual passions.
