This online mediation training program allows you to earn your graduate certificate while maintaining your current work and personal schedules.
Online courses are delivered using Canvas, an online learning management system. Courses are asynchronous, meaning you don't have to log in to watch lectures or participate at designated times. While the online format of this certificate offers flexibility, it still requires the same amount of work and time as campus-based graduate courses. Instruction for online courses is provided in a variety of methods that include:
- Videos of the instructor lecturing, as well as pre-recorded mediation scenarios
- Role-play scenarios via web-based video technology built into the course, during which students have the opportunity to practice the specific mediation skills being taught
- Textbook and article readings
- Other engaging activities that foster synthesis of the course materials
All online courses are eight weeks long, requiring regular internet access the entire time. Please note, internet access should be at a speed that accommodates live video chatting with peers.
