MaxKnowledge and CCA Launch New Online Course: Time & Stress Management for Career College Instructors

Santa Ana , CA , July 12, 2005 – MaxKnowledge and Career College Association today announced the availability of a new online training course for career college faculty.

Time & Stress Management for Career College Instructors is facilitated by MaxKnowledge faculty, Dr. Melissa Read. Dr. Read’s area of specialization is Human Factors Psychology with a focus on workplace issues such as job stress, time management, human-technology interaction and learning.

“Outstanding teachers serve their students by guiding them through their coursework and motivating them to complete program requirements. Career college instructors are often faced with high stress resulting from heavy teaching loads and limited time. When teachers cannot manage their own time and stress, they cannot fully serve the needs of their students. This course will show career college instructors how to manage time and stress in their lives and teach some of these skills to their students,” said Dr. Gary Meers, MaxKnowledge Director of Education.

“Career college instructors live very complex lives. Often teaching schedules are planned around the odd times when students are available to take classes. Many career college instructors work part-time as teachers and full-time in industry. When you top all of this off with family and personal responsibilities, it becomes a real challenge for instructors to perform their teaching duties effectively. But lesson plans must be developed, questions from students must be answered, and homework must be graded – to name just a few things. This course has been designed specifically for career college instructors to help them accomplish their tasks and live a less stressful life,” said Dr. Melissa Read.

The online course is delivered in an asynchronous fashion and participants receive 0.4 Continuing Education Units upon successful completion of the training. The course is available on a continuous enrollment basis on the MaxKnowledge training portal:
