1. What’s included in this online course?
This online course contains four modules. The modules consist of (1) a pre-recorded webinar (2) suggested readings and resources and (3) a self-assessment.
In addition to these modules, one forum (i.e., live webinars) will be offered each academic semester during which course participants will have an opportunity to directly interact with and ask questions of the course instructors. A second forum may be offered based upon course registrants’ interest. Please refer to the course schedule for the dates of the live forums.
2. How do I indicate interest in attending the additional forum?
As noted above, a second forum may be held each semester based on course registrants’ interest as reflected through advanced registration for the forum. Approximately two weeks prior to the date of the forum, forum registration will open. Course registrants interested in attending the forum should register via the link provided on the course's page. (An email with the forum registration link will also be sent to all course registrants at this time.)
Course registrants must register by the stated deadline to indicate their interest in attending the forum. If 20 or more registrants register by the deadline, the forum will be held. If less than 20 registrants have registered by the deadline, the forum will not be held. Please visit the schedule page approximately 48 hours after registration has closed to confirm whether the forum will be held. Course registrants will also be notified via email if the forum has been cancelled.
