Elevated Learning Academy is dedicated to utilizing only the most effective and comprehensive educational models available. It is for this reason that we have adapted the ‘Flipped Classroom’ model as our educational delivery method for the Applied Nutrition Science Diploma program.

The Flipped Classroom

The ‘Flipped Classroom’ model ensures that instructors are accessible to the students, when students need them most. In traditional learning models, students attend in-class lectures by their instructors, and then they get assigned all the creative and applied work to do at home, for homework. The ‘Flipped Classroom’ model flips this traditional system, and instead, students are assigned to watch Video Lectures at home, while in class is where most of the creative and applied work is done, with the assistance of the instructor.

The nutrition industry and personalized health advice are both experiencing huge growth. People are becoming considerably more aware of their health (or lack there of) due to widespread media attention on the growing issue of obesity. Food-related television shows on the Food Network and on the Cooking Channel,are extremely popular, and health advocates and chefs like Jamie Oliver are celebrities. Demographic changes, such as the aging of baby boomers, also attribute a great deal to this growth. Today’s adults are considered to be the most affluent, and health conscious population of the last century. As more and more 55-65 year-olds enter retirement, they’re seeking ways to stay young, and have the disposable income to spend on their health.

Four-Month Applied Nutrition Science Diploma Program
We offer a concise, compact, and efficient Applied Nutrition Science program. In this very intense 4-month course, students learn everything they need to be Nutrition Practitioners. There are other Nutrition-related programs out there but they are either focused on Holistic nutrition, are greater in length or are delivered strictly online.  In our four-month Applied Nutrition Science program, students are able to learn the science behind being a Nutritional Counsellor, and apply that theory in practice, while learning about industry trends, government policies, and best business practices.

The Applied Nutrition Science Diploma is Accessible

At Elevated Learning Academy utilizes a ‘flipped classroom’ educational model. This model ensures that students are assisted by instructors at a time when they need them the most. The way that it works is that the type of activities that are typically assigned for homework, like creative projects, problem-solving questions, and group collaborations, are done within the classroom, with the guidance of an instructor. During the activities outlined above is when students are thinking most critically, and are in need of the support, assistance and encouragement of the instructor. The traditional lecture (that takes up most of the time of the traditional classroom) is assigned for homework and delivered through videos, online. Students are then able to watch the lectures, at their convenience, from the comfort of their home. The entire platform of the Applied Nutrition Science Diploma program is based within an online Learning Management System, where the entire curriculum is housed. The students are issued iPads with all the required materials, ebooks and the curriculum are housed.
