PLS Classes is thrilled to announce the addition of a new course, Developing Executive Function to Empower Learners. This three-credit-hour course focuses on the correlation between student learning and the executive function skills of the brain. Strong executive function skills enhance student learning and empower students throughout their academic and professional lives. With these skills, they are able to exhibit self-regulation of their behavior and emotions, be more self-directed, and display cognitive flexibility in their thinking and perspectives.

In this course, you’ll discover how to develop and strengthen executive function in the areas of organization and planning; focus and attention; working memory; inhibitory control and self-regulation; self-directedness (self-managing, self-monitoring, and self-modifying); and cognitive flexibility. Classroom-applicable strategies are presented in a content-oriented manner which you can use to strengthen executive function skills in all learners. These skills help students become more successful at school, foster strong self-efficacy, and help them throughout their lives.

Currently, the course is being offered through Mercyhurst University and Wilkes University, in both a remote learning and on-site format. Learn more and see the Fall 2021 course schedule.
