Courses are offered in a hybrid model that provides adult learners a great deal of convenience, accessibility, and connectivity to content, resources, and faculty. Each course meets in a physical classroom for eight, three-hour sessions for a total of 24 contact hours over a six-week period. Students attend classes on two Saturdays (day classes) and four Wednesday evenings. Classes are arranged in the following format:
Learning Module 1 – Saturday 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Learning Module 2 – Saturday 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Learning Modules 3, 4, 5, & 6 – Wednesday Evenings 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Learning Module 7 – Saturday 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Learning Module 8 – Saturday 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
On their own schedule, and from any internet-connected computer, students can access course materials, complete/submit assignments, interact with classmates, and correspond with faculty. This network-based learning model provides students a collaborative learning environment that stimulates thinking and broadens perspectives while ensuring that navigating the course website is easy.
All course materials (except textbooks) are available to students via the secure CANVAS course website.
