Supporting teachers has always been a central goal of the UChicago Financial Education Initiative. Our team is constantly working to improve the portfolio of resources we provide financial educators. And this fall, a key component of that portfolio just got a major upgrade.
For several years, finEDge teachers have had access to an online professional learning course (PLC) that focuses on improving financial content knowledge. The course has now been completely redesigned and rewritten to align with the new finEDge curriculum materials. It also provides a more interactive, engaging learning experience! Learners complete game-like activities and work through scenarios to learn and apply financial content in multiple domains.
The course offers the following features:
— Content modules aligned to the domains covered in the finEDge curriculum:
— Financial Decision-Making in Context
— Saving & Spending
— Managing Risk
— A pre-post quiz to assess growth from taking the course
