Deliverables & Due Dates

By the end of week 6:

  • Students should have LinkedIn rough draft completed and get feedback from peers
  • Students complete end of mod self-evaluation survey for CD team to assess support needs

Weekly Student Discussion & Community Collaboration

Every Wednesday afternoon, you’ll meet with other students to discuss and collaborate on your professional development. Read through the overview on the Homeroom Groups page to understand what this will look like. Homeroom groups are with your cohort only and happen in Weeks 1, 3, and 5 while Mix It Up groups are groups that are mixed across the entire student body and happen in Weeks 2 and 4.

Repeating the Module

For students repeating Module 1, they are not required to attend workshops again unless they would like to. Instead, they will create specific goals to work on during the module using this plan. They will continue to meet with their Homeroom and Mix It Up groups on Wednesday afternoons.
