What to Expect
Below, we have provided some information about what students can expect and how it will affect their schedules:
Total Time Commitment
During the first week, total instruction time amounts to approximately 12 hours, which includes four video lectures and approximately 9 hours of on-demand instruction, which students access as their schedules allow.
Preparing for the School
Prior to the start of the school, our instructor will contact each student with important information. There are no special preparations that students must execute in advance of the school. Everything they need to know will be provided ahead of time by email.
Week 1 – Lectures
Pre-recorded video lectures are held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Each lecture lasts approximately 20-30 minutes for a total of approximately 2 hours.
Week 1 – On-Demand Learning Modules
After each lecture, students will be instructed to access the learning modules associated with each lecture. Over the course of week 1, students can expect approximately 9 hours of total learning time, or about 2.5 hours per day.
Week 2 – Final Examination
Week 2 is reserved entirely for students to prepare for and take the final examination. The final examination is online and must be taken in the presence of a laboratory supervisor who will certify that the exam was taken without assistance.
Preparing for the Final Examination
We recommend that students spend approximately four hours in preparation for the final exam, which can be taken at any time during week 2, as long as it is taken before midnight on Friday. There is no instruction during week 2.
Final Coaching Session
Each student is required to participate in a live coaching session with the instructor. This session lasts between 60-90 minutes. During this session, the instructor will ask students some questions about their learning experience and give students some final thoughts and words of encouragement.
