How does a "Flex" course work?

No scheduled live video chats
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great if your learner prefers independent pacing or is uncomfortable with live video chat

Description

Class Experience

At the end of the classes, students will:
Be able to perform the new baking skills taught in each recipe
Be able to explain the purpose of different types of ingredients used in baking cookies
Be able to explain the purpose for each of the steps in a recipe
I have been baking since I was a child since my family is filled with fantastic bakers. I have a particular love of baking cakes and pastries, but I have been a cookie monster for as long as I can remember. I love cookies! I love sharing my baked goods and teaching others to make great baked goods that they can share. I have a degree in biochemistry, so I am fascinated with the chemical processes of baking. I am continuously working on developing my baking skills and adding new bakes to my repertoire. Over 500 learners have taken my baking classes on Outschool. Additionally, I have been teaching asynchronous, online college courses similar in format to Outschool flex classes since 2012.
Each week, learners will watch the videos for the week and bake this week's recipe. The student will post a self-evaluation to the classroom and photos of their bake to the moderated class padlet. They will be able to rate their work and their classmates' work as well. There are no live meetings and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Enrolled Learners and Parents will be provided with a complete supply list, recipes, and other information will be posted to the classroom for the first lesson, then the materials will be posted each Sunday for that week's class. The videos for the week will be posted on Sunday. Basic baking tools include a digital scale (which weighs ounces and grams), set of measuring spoons, baking sheet pans, mixing bowls, cooling rack, parchment paper or silicone pan liner, plastic wrap, sifter, either a stand mixer or a hand mixer will be needed, but cookies may also be mixed by hand.
Learners will perform self-assessment, by tasting their cookies!
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parental guidance is needed in assisting the student in the kitchen as students will be using items such as ovens, microwaves, mixers, knives, or other cooking equipment. Parents should be available in case of accidents or emergencies and ensure the learner knows how to properly operate the kitchen equipment. We will discuss safety in class. Families need to notify the instructor ASAP about any potential allergies. Substitutions can be made for many, but not all of the recipe ingredients. Each family is responsible for knowing what ingredients their family can have. Please contact the instructor for any questions or ideas about substitutions. All of the recipes in this class can easily be made gluten-free.

Learners will be instructed in food safety and kitchen safety during class and how to tell when foods are safely cooked.
In addition to the Outschool Classroom, this class uses videos produced by the instructor, hosted on the instructor's unlisted YouTube channel, and a private, moderated Padlet board.
