The 2021/2022 program will run from September 27, 2021 - April 15, 2022.
During the online portion, the hours are flexible. Students will take courses using a highly interactive learning management system called Canvas. The online portion is semi-synchronous, which allows students to study and complete assignments on their own time, abiding by the set deadlines by the instructors.
During the on-site* portion, the hours are Fridays from 9:00am to 5:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Students will teach in the Community Language Program on Friday mornings and take classes throughout the day.
The Final reflection paper is submitted online following the last week of instruction.
*Please note: due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional on-site portion of the program may be hosted online during the Spring 2022 term. If this is the case, classes during this period will not be semi-synchronous and will be held at their intended times.*
