The purpose of this series of 6 courses is to teach learners the core financial education they need to get through life. Each module has been designed to be a one-credit (600 minutes or ten hours) college-level class. It is meant to be personally relevant to the learner, behavior-based, and flexible in its distribution. At Bellevue Community College, we offer these courses online with open lab support on Friday. Students may register for the courses throughout the college quarter and complete the work at their convenience before the quarter ends.
Many studies have shown that exposure to financial knowledge alone does not bring about change in the typical learner. The goal of these courses is to get the learner to adopt good financial behaviors and to make a habit of them. Each course contains activities that help the learner practice good financial behaviors. We acknowledge that we must reach as many learners as we can in whatever places it is easiest to reach them. These courses can be adapted to 90-minute sessions for the community or they may be adapted to whatever format works in your college or community. They are available to any educator as long as the DFI is cited as owner of the copyright and no profit is earned from their use.
It is our belief that these courses can be taught by any educator who is concerned about the financial security of our state. We have started a network of educators who are welcome to contribute their best practices and lessons learned in advancing financial education.
