The Virtual Classroom Community
Our program nurtures a community of learners in a combination of asynchronous, synchronous and face-to-face classes. Working students learn in a supportive environment. Do not be surprised if you notice more interaction between class members and with faculty than in a traditional classroom!
Clinical hours will be arranged near the students’ residence by collaboration between student, faculty, agency, and preceptor.
Distance learning model
All courses will be set up in distance learning mode. Students will take a one credit hour course prior to the first semester that includes the logistics of a distance learning model as well as the theoretical framework, procedures, and policies of the program.
The seminar will enable students and faculty to begin to build a community of learners that is a vital part of the program. Part of this course will include a weekend face-to-face seminar with program faculty.
Faculty and staff support
An adviser will provide ongoing support for students and assist with logistics, technology issues, community building, and other program-related issues. Students will also have the support of the EMU IS Department, program faculty, graduate writing tutors and online library resources.
