Live Classroom Learning

mk-circles-300-classWith the advent of online courses, the debate on the benefits of online education versus traditional school continues to evolve. While online schools offer many benefits to different types of students, the advantages of traditional classrooms are still valid today. Traditional classrooms offer social interaction as well as a certain structure and familiarity that online education isn’t designed to do. Other advantages would include face-to-face interaction, social interaction, comfort level, and structure.

Flipped/Hybrid Learning

Medical Billing and Coding Specialist"Flipped" or "Hybrid" are names commonly used to describe courses in which some traditional face-to-face "seat time" has been replaced by online learning activities. The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning. A hybrid course is designed to integrate face-to-face and online activities so that they reinforce, complement, and elaborate one another, instead of treating the online component, as an add-on or duplicate of what is taught in the classroom. We use the perfect explanation of online lectures at home and hands-on workshops in the classroom.

Online Learning

online classesA virtual classroom is an online classroom that allows participants to communicate with one another, view presentations or videos, interact with other participants, and engage with resources in work groups. This option tends to be non-restricting, affordable, flexible learning, and accessible.

This has proven to be a top-notch program in turning out skilled, knowledgeable technicians and getting lots of very positive feedback from the Pharmacy community. MK Education provides everything necessary to run successful programs, from the materials and supplies, to the caring customer service.

What is Flipped Learning?
Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as the apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter.
What makes MK Education’s programs different?
With the understanding that MK Education stands behind their resourceful printed material and  qualified educators, the flipped learning and hands on education experience is unable to be compared.  All MK Education instructors are employed throughout the professional industries of the courses they instruct, and genuinely show a passion to each student who enters the classroom.  Also know that the MK Education programs are customized, and we are happy to tailor our programs to fit your institution’s specific needs.  MK Education’s programs revolutionize career training programs by personalizing student learning and making it possible for millions of adults to at least earn a career certification while balancing work and family.
What teaching style elements are used in the typical MK Education classroom setting?

Our instructors focus on several teaching style elements within the classroom:

  1. Ease of understanding – since the target audience is frontline allied healthcare workers, community workers; the language would be very simple. The modules will cover basic concepts in form of a story and real-life scenarios, which the audience can easily relate to.
  2. Hybrid approach which can run as a flipped classroom – students can familiarize themselves with the topic by forming groups, having discussions and, reading books. Since many topics covered are quite sensitive to deal with in real life scenarios, students would have role plays to understand life skills.
  3. Real-life application – The modules focus on teaching how-to techniques with emphasis on applying techniques they learn to their own life situations.
  4. Video illustration – thought-provoking or learning videos that inspire change in behavior. Simple videos that community workers can relate to, and apply. Lectures outside the classroom, Workshops (homework) in the classroom
  5. Activity based – All classroom activities are based on peer-learning methods to increase student engagement and motivation.
  6. Teacher as a facilitator – Trainers will facilitate the activities and ensure maximum participation. They will encourage learners by coaching them and giving feedback. Facilitators will help these students face real life scenarios confidently by encouraging role-plays.
  7. Practical exposure and OJT (on the job training) would ensure that students are equipped and employable as soon as they finish the course.
