混合学习

混合式学习包括面对面和在线环境. Usually the time between the two environments is split half-and-half (one week online; one week face-to-face). 然而,具体课程的时间表可能会有所不同.

在线学习

在线学习完全或几乎完全在网上进行. 有时,在学位课程开始时需要校园参观. There may also be some specific synchronous online course meeting times that are part of the course plan, 通常使用在线视频会议工具. 然而, 大多数工作都是在线异步进行的, 在课程中,学生每周在不同的时间贡献.

在线学习课程设计

主动学习, 有时被称为“投入式学习”,强调以学生为中心的学习在教师的便利环境. 所有的在线课程都是用这种方法设计的. 这些课程强调从经验中积累知识, 哪个与成年学习者特别相关. 在积极的学习环境中, 学生最终要对自己的学习负责.

You can think of the course content as the “clay” you use to construct your own knowledge via meaningful learning activities that will include reading, 写作, 辩论和对话, 批判性分析, 解决问题, 以及与同龄人的合作活动.


Taking a course in an online environment does not mean you will have less work to do. 在线环境的灵活性是一个很大的好处. 然而, the time that you do not spend in an actual classroom will be accounted for in other ways through reading assignments, 讨论区帖子, 小测验, 等. Below is a chart that can help you gauge how much time you can expect to spend in an online course:

课程学分 每周的工作
2学分课程 300分钟(5小时)
3学分课程 450分钟(7.5小时)
4学分课程 600分钟(10小时)

 

You will be expected to participate during each week of the semester in an online class at St. 凯特的. Many classes establish a weekly schedule that is included in the syllabus so you have an idea of what to expect.

速成课程为7.5周. 学生 appreciate the programmatic benefits of moving through coursework in a shorter time. 但是,您必须能够适应增加的工作量和更快的节奏. 预计每周花15-18个小时参加速成课程.

如果你选的是混合课程,你会被要求来学校. 你什么时候来学校是根据每门课程来决定的. Fully online courses have no campus requirements or expectations unless the program includes an initial campus orientation visit or optional summer seminars.

为了安装所有必要的浏览器插件和软件, 您需要计算机的管理权限. Some work computers do not allow for this; most personal computers do.

通过当地企业接入互联网可能会带来一些挑战. 网络连接可能比在家里慢(因为所有人都共享). 公共Wi-Fi可能会带来安全问题. 还建议你找一个安静的地方学习, 繁忙的商业场所可能无法提供这样的环境. 除了, most places such as coffee shops regulate how much time customers spend using their internet.

而这将为你提供一个安静的学习场所, using a public computer at a library will not allow you to install the necessary browser plugins.

虽然这些设备在很多方面都很棒, you may find that you need something more robust to complete your assignments and do all of your work. Software such as the Microsoft Office Suite cannot be installed on most tablets and some course material may not be viewable from a tablet.

Asynchronous simply means that your learning is done on your time and there is no specific time that the entire class meets together. 不过,你可能仍然有作业的最后期限. 相反, synchronous learning happens at set times during the week for real time lectures or discussions online and you must be available during those prescribed class times.

一些项目需要临床课程. 这是如何安排不同的程序.
