Additional Info

In addition to the required 8 courses, students must also complete the Student Evaluation in order to graduate. Achievement of the program learning outcomes will occur through the assessment of a lesson plan, peer and instructor feedback about lesson delivery in the Micro Teaching Clinic, and the submission of a learning synopsis.

TT1: Introduction to Teaching and Training Adults must be taken first, TT1 through TT4 must be completed prior to TT5.

It is recommended that mandatory courses be taken in the order specified, especially for individuals new to facilitating learning because the courses are sequenced toward the Micro Teaching Clinic; each course builds on the skills of the previous course.
