How the course is taught
The course is taught online in a learning platform and is self-paced. With each module you will be assigned reading material and then asked to reflect on the reading through a written response. You will be given written feedback on your reflections and opportunities to clarify or ask questions. At the end of the course after completing the last assignment you will be asked to set up a 30-minute consultation with me for review. You will not be quizzed! This is an opportunity for a collaborative conversation and fulfills “learning in real-time” required by some states.
