Section Expectation

This course is online. All associated readings and resources will be located in the Bb course space, there is no required text. This course is offered in a condensed time frame. Students should anticipate spending 17 - 25 hours peer week completing all course work. Not all work will be completed online; some assignments require students to independently conduct field observation and reflection.


Assignments include critical reflective journal assignments and small group discussions. There will be several short written assignments and one culminating project based on individual interest (topic, audience, EE format). Pending instructor permission, instead of a culminating project, students may also design an applied learning project, practicing EE in a local organization.
