The capacity for the first offering is 30 students so registration is limited.

This is the first course being offered as part of a post-graduate certificate program. The plan is to develop 9 courses in 2021 with release of the program in winter 2022.  The last course is a 90-hour practicum.  

The course design involves 13 modules with readings/videos/webinars, critical inquiry questions, and group discussions. The textbook is Stamlers et al (2020). Students are in groups of 6 and participation is expected by posting their original response to the critical inquiry questions and to respond at least once to a peer. The assessment methods are 10 knowledge check quizzes, 3 critical reflections, 2 graded discussion posts and final MCE.
