6 Weeks: The Team Leader Orientation is a five-week course, preceded by a one-week introduction to online learning.
The course will require a minimum of about six hours a week of work, depending on your level of interaction with the other students. All the material is presented online, and will be a mix of text, audio and video. Also, a main part of the course is the interaction between participants and the facilitator through forums. SEND Team Leader Orientation is an asynchronous course, so there are not specific times you need to be online. Participants will be in several different time zones around the world, so there is not one set time when everyone is on at the same time. The assignments have due dates, but you are free to complete those assignments according to your schedule (i.e., you can do them at night, in the morning, at lunch, etc.).
Please contact Ken Guenther (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know that you want to take the course. The application for participation can be found at this link.
