Learn When it is Convenient

Complete courses at any time of day, any day of the year. Start the journey with other participants or start at your convenience. It is entirely your choice.

Are There Any Live Meetings with the Instructor?

We implemented online learning decades ago. Initially, participants were required to attend weekly live, virtual sessions to complete each course. Increasingly participants asked to forgo the live meetings due to their hectic work schedules. They chose to complete the online modules without the need for live meeting participation. At some point, we decided to make the live virtual meetings optional.

The recent trend towards online learning due to pandemic driven workplace disruption has increased the need for live sessions. We are accommodating those who wish to interact with instructors by increasing live presentations followed by discussion. It is always tricky to schedule a time that everyone is available. We do the best that we can.

 

 

Learn from Other Participants

Virtual online learning can simulate classroom discussion. The learning platform you and other participants have access to is designed for online learning. It offers features that enable participants to learn from each other. The platform is insufficient alone. DELA course content has been designed and developed by expert distance learning experts. It is common for participants to learn from each other and develop collegial relationships.

How Do I Attend Virtual Courses?

There are two ways to attend each DELA course. You can complete the set of lessons for each course at your convenience or attend weekly one-hour sessions in webinar format. DELA 100B, for example, has ten modules. The menu for the course looks like the figure below.

You decide how fast or slow you will go in completing the course as long as you complete each course within 90 days. We know that sometimes a few more days may be necessary to make that happen, so feel free to request more time. We will coach you in making progress and putting a time limit on course completion is one way to support you.

The other choice is to attend once a week live seminar. Yes, we do get together. The facilitator starts with a brief overview and mini-lecture, which is followed by discussion. You have the opportunity to listen to what other participants share and make your own contributions. Each of the live presentations is recorded and uploaded to the site for review or in case you are absent.

Each level of the course is composed of 8 to 10 modules. You complete each module in sequential order. Each module has:

  • A set of readings that you download (most likely) or corresponding to a textbook you are required to purchase (We only require this for one course at this time).
  • An instructional video or presentation
  • A Discussion Board exercise at the end
  • Some courses have assignments that may require you to apply what you are learning
  • There are two quizzes
  • Some courses require projects that not only allow you to put what you learn into practice but also a practical tool or solution.

Coursework is graded by the facilitator. The facilitator provides both feedback on the quality of the submission as well as professional development support. Once you have completed all coursework satisfactorily, you are done. Complete all online cultural diversity certification courses and you receive your credentials.

Whether you choose to go at it totally alone or attend the live sessions, you will have assignments to complete based on the readings (handouts) and presentations (live and recorded). The assignments are read by the facilitator who gives you feedback for professional development. You are also required to give other participants’ feedback as part of the learning experience. So, you are learning from each other even though you may not be online at the same time. You have interaction without the time constraints.

Not Sure if Online Courses are For You?—Then How About a Test Drive

Register and start the course. We are confident that you will get a lot out of it and complete it in a timely manner. However, if after completing module 1, you feel that the experience is not for you, we will change the registration to the first two days of the classroom course.
