The purpose of this series of curriculum modules is to provide information to faculty that makes it possible to introduce gerontological content into the courses you are teaching. Gerontological content, if it is present at all in a text, often comes at the end of the book. By providing some foundations, tools and resources, we hope that you will be able to infuse gerontological principles and ideas throughout your course and provide your students with an enhanced learning experience.
Thank you for participating. Before accessing the modules, you will be prompted to complete a demographics form. Please complete this form and upon submission, you will be directed to the registration page and then onto the module lesson. Please follow all directions to complete each module and submit results in order to receive a certificate of completion for each module.
Be aware that it may take between 24 and 72 hours to receive notice of your certificate via the email you provided when accessing the lesson. Upon completion of any module, the program manager will email you a link to access our lesson evaluation tool. Upon submission of this evaluation, you will be given a web address to copy and paste into your web browser’s address bar. This will open up the certificate as a PDF file and allow you to type in your name and the date using Adobe Reader. Please make sure you have Adobe Reader installed on your computer (you may download it from the link below) . You can then either print and/or save the file to your computer.
You must achieve an overall percent score of 80% or better within each module. If you do not meet this minimum requirement, you will not be issued a certificate of completion. You may go back to any module and re-attempt the quizzes and activities at any time in order to achieve a passing score.
