STEP 2: Complete all assignments.
Begin with Session 1: How to Take this Self-Paced Workshop. Each session contains one or more pages--some are informational only, while others contain journal prompts and links to post your reflections in our discussion forum.

A Note on Creating Journal Entries: At several points throughout this workshop, you will be asked to write down reflections to specific prompts in your journal. Because we do not currently offer an online journal application, we ask that you enter your journal responses in a word processing document that you maintain on your hard drive. At the end of the workshop, you will be asked to submit this journal document for review. We will accept most types of documents, including Microsoft Word, Wordpad, Notepad, Pages, TextEdit, etc.

STEP 3: Successful Completion of the Workshop.
Successful completion of this self-paced workshop is based on the following three requirements:

  1. All pages have been read, as explained above.
  2. Completion of all message board/discussion activities.
  3. Completion and e-mail submission of all journal reflections. In the final session, instructions will be provided on where to send your journal document for review.
