Course Delivery

This page contains information the instructor will find helpful in administering course.

Course Outline

A course outline available, containing required Learning Objectives, timelines, and topical outlines; it is customizable to reflect specific programs.

Delivery

The course is between 24-28 hours of teaching for the instructor and between 20-28 hours of work per student. The instructor can decide the best method of delivery for their students.

Below are two examples of instruction methods that can be followed:

In Class

The instructor meets with the class for two hours a week to review client progress and client management. Since students are expected to dedicate 20-28 hours of work to their client project, they should be given class time to work rather than expecting them to do so outside of class time. This method allows the instructor to regularly meet with students and assess their progress.

Hybrid: Combination in-class and online

This method involves dividing course time between the classroom and online mentoring in order to better suit the instructor and students’ schedules.

An example of this method includes:

  1. One or two introductory classes to provide an overview of the course, expectations, and to match students with their clients
  2. 3-4 weeks of individual working sessions for students with scheduled meeting times with the instructor
  3. Classroom sessions at the midway point of the semester to review any issues conflicting students about their client or their project, as well as to review client management best practices
  4. 3-4 more weeks of individual working sessions for students with scheduled meeting times with the advisor
  5. A classroom session before the end of the semester to review client project progress and wrap up the course
  6. A classroom session dedicated to final client project presentations

Assessment

Rubrics are to be developed by the instructor and should be discussed with students at the beginning of the course to ensure appropriate projects are chosen and expectations are clear.

Client Surveys

Clients are an essential part of the evaluation process and will be asked to provide feedback about the students. Instructors are responsible for creating a feedback form that will allow clients to effectively evaluate the students and their work. For group projects, instructors will create one form per group so the client does not have to complete multiple surveys for one project.
