How It Works

Class & Video Links

Monday, Friday and/or Wednesday Class Links and weekly homework "brainsbark" video links can be found on every Weekly Schedule/Agenda. Class links are also available in the "Schedule" project on Basecamp.

Most weeks, you'll be required to partake in paired partner exercises, where we'll ask that you plan a time to meet for one hour to complete that week's assignment. This is a great opportunity to network! When you meet will be up to you and your partner, however, we highly encourage you to meet prior to the faculty office hours to take advantage of guidance from the Module Faculty, should you have any questions.

Rebecca Schultz, your Lead Faculty, will post the Weekly Schedule/Agenda (Word doc.) every Friday afternoon prior to the upcoming week, that will contain all necessary links for that week.

Recordings for every Module/Clinic class webinar will be made available for viewing/download on Basecamp under their respective project folder.

 

FACULTY OFFICE HOURS

There are two 1-hour office hours available with Module Faculty, that are optional. During these meetings you can engage with the Module Faculty and/or team facilitating that week and discuss any relevant topics, pre-work, videos, etc.

There will be an office hour everyday available during Orientation Week for any quetions on technology, platforms used, or any program questions overall.

Remember these are optional but highly recommended!
