C2C Car Courses
What are C2C Care Courses?
Our courses offer the chance to have a more interactive participation with instructors and to concentrate on a series of webinars devoted to a specific topic with the possibility to check on your understanding of new materials. Courses can include a variety of activities including just watching the live webinars, to discussions with your fellow participants, and to completing a project designed to help you apply what was covered in the course.
Who are the instructors?
Our webinar coordinators are leaders in their field and they choose instructors who they feel are not only leaders but, who understand the setting and milieu of those working in smaller institutions that may not have access to professional help. We find our instructors with our participants in mind.
How much time will I need to commit?
You may commit as much time as you wish, however, the minimum time is about 2-3 hours per week – including the time for live webinars.
What if I can’t watch all of the Course Webinars “live”?
The recordings of the webinars will be posted soon after the “live” webinars. If you miss a live webinar, you will have access through the Course set-up and be able to watch the webinar at a later time, as long as you do so during the Course period. You will need to keep up with the webinars to be able to participate fully in the other course activities.
What do I need to do to earn a Credly badge?>
In order to receive a CREDLY Badge you must:
- View all webinars – these can be viewed either live or the recordings as long as they are viewed during the Course period.
