Finance

Insurance introduces learners to the insurance industry and its critical role in the financial services sector and society. The course covers the purpose and uses of the most common types of insurance, including life, health and disability, property, liability, and various forms of commercial insurance. Learners use the foundational information gained in Principles of Finance to deepen their understanding and explore new insurance concepts. They examine the industry's business model and the role that underwriting, actuarial science, and investment practices determine an insurance company's financial success. Learners take an in-depth look at the individual components of an insurance contract or policy, including concepts such as covered perils, exclusions, riders, declarations, and conditions. Finally, the course examines the different career opportunities available in the field, including underwriter, claims adjuster, and agent.

FOR EDUCATORS: Your ability to provide a personalized, learner-centered environment and implement competency-based instruction requires more than your content expertise. Personalized learning requires an educator who constantly engages in reflective practices to learn and hone communication, listening, collaboration, adaptability, empathy, and patience skills. You strive to be a future ready educator by developing as a professional in four educator competency domains: Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Cognitive, and Instructional.

FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?

The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
