The course is a partnership with the Student Affairs Assessment Leaders (SAAL), Colorado State University (CSU) Online, and the CSU Student Affairs in Higher Education master's program. The curriculum provides self-paced materials that address several learning outcomes. This course aims to provide participants the opportunity to:
The eight-week course opens on February 5, 2018, and closes on April 2, 2018. Each content module will be released one week at a time, but the course is self-paced, so participants may access as many of the open modules as they wish for as long as the content is available in Canvas. Participants may join the class at any time while it is open. The later one joins, though, the less one may interact with classmates and instructors. Still, signing up late is better than signing up never! Enrollment closes on March 23, 2018, so sign up before then.
This online course is available for free.
The course is coordinated within SAAL by the Professional Development Committee. Questions about the course may be directed to the firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about registration and technical requirements for participating in the online course (e.g., platform used) may be directed to the MOOC team at Colorado State University.
Whether the course is offered again will be determined jointly by CSU and SAAL, so don't miss this opportunity to join and gain access to the materials now.
