a. A world of learning, enhanced by teamwork and collaboration, grounded by ethics. Our distinctive approach, researched and designed exclusively by Fremont College’s Chancellor and CEO, is Professional Action Learning Embedded with Industry® (“PAL”). This unique teaching methodology focuses on peer-to-peer interactive learning, role-playing, and student presentations of course material—all supplemented with reflective summaries and blog posts. PAL is designed to transform students into articulate, skilled professionals ready to lead in today’s competitive workplace.
a. Exciting educational model that is dynamically changing the way higher education is disseminated, absorbed by students, and utilized by both graduates and employers. Unbundled is a building-block system of education where courses are broken down into units that can be combined into certificates that are then combined into degrees. This setup allows for enviable customization, specialization, organic growth, and efficiency. Fremont students have the freedom to pick and choose the classes they want to take when they want to take them by building their own degree paths based upon course/certificate/degree building blocks.
a. The 21st century model of higher education is job-specific curriculum supplemented with real world experience and training. A vertically integrated education is a blending of business with education in a way that is mutually beneficial. The model represents a collaboration of universities and business who work in tandem to create curriculum informed directly by the needs of the business. Universities teach this curriculum. Students take the class and work at the business concurrently earning both a degree and résumé-worthy experience. Students benefit by graduating with a degree, years of work experience, and specialization for a specific job. The business benefits with freshly graduated employees specifically trained and already integrated into their business culture.
a. A tech-fueled model of learning built upon the convenience of written and video content online delivery. Flipped, blended, and personalized learning is an ideal integration of online and in class modalities that allows students to optimize their own learning. All lectures are didactic and online so that students can view them according to their learning style and the appropriate level of learning as needed. They take these lessons and implement them into a collaborative, project-based classroom setting with their professors and peers.
a. Method of learning that focuses on overall improvement of life. From the personal, to the spiritual, to the emotional aspects of the human experience, heart-centered learning focuses less on the academic and instead targets improving on what makes us human.
