Course DescriptionStudents choose from two options: a field placement or a research/development project. All options emphasize student's development as an emerging professional. For field placement, students must arrange for an opportunity to volunteer as a project manager and submit a report. The research/development project offers students the opportunity to explore an area of specialization in more detail. (39 PDUs)

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
