Normally, faculty are able to complete the program in 3 years. Alternate options are available:
1) Standard Pattern of 3 Years with 3 Modules per Year and Capstone in Year 3
2) Fast-Track Completion in 2 1/2 years
3) Part-Time Completion in up to 5 Years
We encourage you to discuss with your Year Facilitator the best pathway to graduation for you.
1) The Delivery Method for ETaL involves face-to-face seminars and online components.
2) Online components are completed in Blackboard.
3) Scheduling: All face-to-face seminars for ETaL Modules have been scheduled to correspond to faculty constraint times on Friday afternoons (please see exact dates when registering for specific Modules).
4) Pre-Requisites: the Pre-Module and Module 1 are Pre-Requisite Modules.
5) Modules 2-6 do not need to be completed in numerical order. Please note: the CTL would recommend completing some Modules back-to-back due to laddered content (e.g. Modules 1 & 2; Modules 5 & 6). Module 6 should be left to Year 2 of the program.
1) Each Module (course) will take approximately 12-15 hours over 4 weeks to complete.
2) Each Module has several assignments (e.g. journal assignments, discussion boards, application to teaching assignments, video creation assignments). These assignments are module-specific and are designed to meet the Learning Outcomes for each module.
3) In year 3, the Capstone is a self-directed project involving a personal investigation into teaching and learning. Through the Capstone, participants also re-evaluate their teaching philosophies and reflect on their learning.
4) Completion of all Assignments is a condition for successful completion. Participants may be asked to redo assignments or provide further clarification. Assignments are "graded" as Complete/Incomplete.
5) All assignments must be completed prior to each Module's final Seminar.
6) All assignments are submitted through an ePortfolio and faculty are supported in the Pre-Module in creating a personal ePortfolio. An example of an ePortfolio: https://sites.google.com/site/etaleportfolio/
1) PLR is granted based on evidence submitted by the individual faculty member and assessed by the Facilitator.
2) The Pre-Module and Module 1 are not eligible for PLR.
3) All other Modules (Modules 2-6) and the Capstone are eligible for PLR.
4) All faculty are encouraged to seek PLAR and consult the CTL about PLAR opportunities.
