Event description

Description

The Dakota Cohort Trainings in Deaf-Blindness: was developed through a collaborative effort between the National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB) and the South Dakota Deaf-Blind Program. Through use of the NCDB developed online training modules, participants are provided with a “hosted site” which provides an opportunity for online learning, participant discussions, technical support, review of assignments, and a variety of credit options.

There are four series/courses offered this semester. Participants are required to take Series 1 and are encouraged to take Series 2 before taking any other series/courses. This will provide you with a solid foundation of learning, which will be beneficial to you in subsequent modules. There are 27 modules in total which will be bundled into seven different series. Series 1, 2, & 3 will be offered every semester. Series 4, 5, 6, & 7 will rotate. Ideally, you would stay within a series when selecting your courses. Those participants seeking university credit from USD, have the option of 1 credit (2 modules-first two or last two in a series), or 2 credits (4 modules) in each series. Students may enroll in more than one series at a time, with the understanding that all work needs to be done at the end of the semester. University credit seeking participants will receive a USD registration form following registration and USD credit approval. Graduate level students are expected to complete an additional assignment of a 1-2 page reflection paper. All seven series are listed below. Series being offered Spring 2019 are bolded.
