SAINT AUGUSTINE – Flagler College Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) program courses are designed to be interesting and stimulating while fostering knowledge sharing and relationship building in the community. On-campus classes are on hiatus for now, but learning, personal growth and professional development can continue online.
To help individuals venture into online learning, the Flagler ACE program recently launched three free online, self-paced courses available to the public. These courses are offered in cooperation with ACE program partner, MindEdge Learning.
“People staying safe at home are eager to continue growing and exploring,” said Jorge Herrera, ACE program director. “These three courses provide an opportunity to try out online learning risk free, and to share their experiences and shared interests with our learning community.”
On May 1, registration opens for the Personal Creativity course. Through tools and exercises drawn from Adrian Brown’s book, “Creativity & Innovation,” this course seeks to help unlock the creativity within individuals. Participants learn to tap into their personal creativity and apply it to organizational challenges. Remember, running a household can be as challenging as running a business.
Introduction to Critical Thinking was released in April and Creativity in Teams and Organizations follows in June. All three courses will remain available through Aug. 31. Those who complete all three free courses have just one remaining to earn a Certificate in Creativity and innovation. The course, titled Innovation in Teams and Organizations, is only $79.
In addition to this complimentary selection, more than 40 other online courses are available. Registration fees range from $20 to $129 per course and professionals with certificates or licenses can earn continuing education units, or CEUs.
