Winter 2019 Course:
We are planning on offering an elective course during the 2019 winter session for students in the Master’s program. (Other interested students may also contact us for authorization). The course is EDUC 689: Advance Special Topics in Education: Managing Your Career. Winter registration begins October 22, 2018. You must receive authorization to register.
This is a three credit graduate level course that may be used as an elective for the ISD Training Systems Master’s degree. The main objective of the course is to prepare students to advance their career goals. The course description may be found here, http://isd.umbc.edu/courses.
The course will be taught online and have individual coaching and career advising sessions with students using the phone, webcams, Skype, Blackboard, and more. Scheduled as a winter session course, which is normally only three to four weeks long, students may have an incomplete grade assigned to them at the end of the winter session and may extend their work and assignments beyond January. When students finish their assignments, they will have a final grade submitted. (Academic deadlines and financial deadlines must still follow UMBC’s schedule: http://winter.umbc.edu/calendar.)
