    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course not only provides an in depth look at what a graduate student should know and the ability to use that knowledge to its full advantage. The course provided an assignment that concerned the library and how to take advantage of all of the sources available for research, which proved to be invaluable. This course introduced me to college life for a second chance.

    Course highlights:

    Personalized learning was a highlight of this course for me. Personalized learning describes a course plan that is designed to benefit my education experience. Course curricula should include consideration for nontraditional students and provide us the opportunity to thrive in our new endeavor. One way of providing support for nontraditional students is personalized feedback. Because I am enrolled in an online university, mentors and their approach to older students is extremely important and are appreciated because of their life experiences. Older students need to be recognized as a benefit to the educational milieu and the personalized approach is extremely important. Personal learning includes mentoring available, utilizing a curriculum that understands the nontraditional students' value to the educational process, and feedback that is constructive, allowing students to feel that they are part of the important process of their education. Assignments included time management, academic integrity, intellectual property, reading and understanding scientific papers, and critical thinking. Asynchronous discussions were part of each weekly assignment. The course was an 8-week course and at times the stress was high. However, the course was interesting and meaningful.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is intended to ease your transition from everyday life stressors to educational stressors. A transition that will teach you that sleep is highly overrated. Actually, Foundations for Graduate Study in Education is the foundation upon which your world is meant to expand and develop. I would tell students that keeping some type of schedule for time management is a must for graduate students, especially graduate students who are non-traditional. Always carefully read the assignment instructions, read the assigned literature, and upload your assignments in a timely fashion. Be prepared to receive feedback, which, hopefully, will be constructive. If the feedback is negative in nature, speak to your mentor to discover the parameters of the course and what she/he is looking for. Critical thinking is a must, so practice turning negative situations into positive ones. Most important of all: Do Not let your work slide. Not uploading or turning in assignments will not only produce marks against you, but they will a signal to your mentor that you lack the incentive to produce quality work. Take the time to make your educational experience meaningful and take the time to enjoy this journey.
