Frequently Asked Questions

+What are the cost and credit options for a book study?

Learners Edge, in conjunction with select Academic Partners, offers 3 graduate credits for your participation in a Book Study. The Book Study course is documented on an official university transcript as Course 991: Required Reading, Text Seminar.

Visit our Pricing page for credit and group discount options.

+How is the book/text chosen and approved?

The text for the Book Study must be educational in topic and of graduate level content: a mix of research and application is best with a recent copyright and credible length (at least 100 pages).

We encourage you to align your Book Study and text choice with your building or district initiatives, but this is not a necessity.

After your group has decided on a text, one member of the group, designated as the facilitator, must complete the form at the bottom of this page or email the title, author, copyright and brief description or web link to: instructor@LearnersEdgeInc.com for approval - prior to registration. You and your group may officially register only after receiving email or phone confirmation from a Learners Edge instructor on approval of your chosen text.

+How do I request a transcript?
You will contact your Academic Partner directly to request a transcript, once you have received a grade from us. 
+How many times may I register for the book study course?
You may take a maximum of two (2) Book Studies during one (1) calendar year—no more than one per session. You may take a combined total of three (3) Book Studies from Learners Edge.
+What are the course requirements for a Book Study?

The Book Study course requirements include:

  • 4 meetings with a group of colleagues for at least one hour each, with detailed recorded minutes and take-aways
  • Individual written response to group-generated text questions
  • Reflection Requirement
  • Application Requirement (with individual and group options)

Pre-approval of selected text by the Learners Edge Book Study Instructor is required prior to registration.

+How do I register for a Book Study?

You and your group may officially register only after receiving email or phone confirmation from a Learners Edge instructor on approval of your chosen text.
