Cohort learning and mentorship.
You might think that being fully online means you won’t have opportunities to interact in meaningful ways with other educators or program supervisors, but that is not the case with Concordia University. Live synchronous sessions allow you to collaborate with your instructors, peers, and guest speakers. With regional centers located throughout the southern California area and centrally in the San Francisco Bay area, there are real people who are going to be engaging you throughout your program experience. You will have support and mentorship through partnership between your school site and Concordia supervisors.
You will also be encouraged to make a trip every so often to come in person to participate in three weekend symposiums. It’s a great opportunity to be face-to-face with other members of your cohort and connect in person with supervisors. The sessions last four hours and are followed by meeting times with your Concordia program supervisor. After that, you could be headed to the beach in beautiful southern California for a weekend refresher! Start considering a little vacation while still completing coursework!
If you cannot make a trip to southern California for symposiums, you can still participate in a smaller gathering either through a regional site or at home on your laptop or tablet. Conference technologies and live streaming allow you to attend every meeting or symposium from the comfort of your favorite chair or coffee shop.
