Upon enrollment you’ll be provided with immediate access to the STEAM certification program. Learners may move through each sprint at their own pace. Learners are expected to submit each project for one-time feedback to ensure they are on the right track as they move through the program.
As this is a self-study program, learners do not have access to a coach or cohort, but have the flexibility of autonomous learning. However, learners will have the ability to connect once per quarter with a member of our Academic team to ask questions and receive clarification, as well as to participate in seminars with guest lecturers. Additionally, a private community space is provided for all learners. It is expected that learners use this space to connect with other participants, share their reflections and questions, and to support each other.
At the end of each sprint is a project that must be completed. After the lessons in Sprint 4, learners will be tasked with creating an implementation plan presentation for stakeholders that includes their previous sprint projects.
Final implementation plans will go through a revision process, however a successful plan (80% or above) must be submitted within 3 iterations.
Upon successful passing of the final implementation plan, candidates will receive access to a Capstone project. This capstone pulls together your learning from the program and gives you the opportunity to present it to an audience through a video recording. Once completed and passed, STEAM Leadership Certification will be awarded.
Certification graduates will be recognized during our online commencement in June of the year they finish, be listed in our alumni directory, and receive 520 PD hours and 20 CEUs.
