Courses are delivered online using Canvas as the learning management system. Pedagogical inquiry/research is a component of the courses.
Candidates are responsible to the course instructor for all activities and assignments throughout the course as evidenced through the course outlines. The AQ and ABQ courses are based on a five-module approach with six tasks per module. In each module, the sixth task is connected to the candidate’s pedagogical inquiry/research project. Candidates are expected to successfully complete all course work by the end of the course session.
As mandated by OCT, all AQ and ABQ courses have been developed with a minimum expectation of 125 hours of course work. The duration of the courses is dependent on the session in which the courses are offered. Fall and Spring courses are approximately 10 weeks in duration. Summer sessions are shorter in duration: please refer to the schedule for the dates.
Please note that with the shorter courses, the workload remains the same, with an increased concentration of hours during the summer weeks needed to complete course work. Please refer to the schedule section for the duration of each session.
