We are looking for designers, teachers, subject matter experts (SMEs), authors, and influencers who are passionate about current civil and consumer issues. The Public Square Academy (PSA) is building a curated collection of courses, taught by experts like yourself, designed to educate, engage, and empower citizens. The courses will cover topics from policy and advocacy, to government structure and operations, personal and community development, school, and workplace engagement, and consumer training in financial literacy, healthcare, and consumer rights. Building a course on PSA allows you to reach new audiences with your mission and message and provides you with an opportunity to position yourself as a thought leader in your field.
The programs that PSA offers are different from typical online programs in that they emphasize student interaction, cohesive group learning, and active mentoring. PSA walks you through design this type of engaging learning experience and also supports you as you begin marketing your program to participants.
Our Program Design support includes:
1) Program design, development, and delivery instruction and support, based on an adult learning model and emphasizing interactivity (discussions, case studies, role plays, fictionalization, gamification, etc.).
2) Tools and business services. The Canvas LMS, Zoom video conferencing, payment processing/reporting, prof. liability insurance, etc. The Canvas Learning Management System enables synchronous, cloud-based access from computers, tablets, and mobile devices enabling 7×24 access to program content and discussions.
3) Helping you attract participants with a strategic marketing plan. We develop and execute brand marketing programs, promote individual programs on our PSA brand channels, and help you develop and execute program-specific marketing plans targeted to your intended customers.
Two versions of the design class are offered, one for SMEs with little design or instructional experience, followed with a program marketing class. We also offer a fast track program for experienced designers which combines marketing planning with course design.
