Course Description:

Description: This educational planning workshop will allow Russian-speaking international distance learning students to integrate successfully into the American college environment and to develop necessary global competencies, including expected academic skills, learning management skills, cross-cultural and e-learning skills. For successful transition, students will use bilingual guidelines prepared by Russian-speaking professors. Students will learn how to make efficient use of the vast electronic information resources, online databases and other information technology services of the College; they will learn how to participate in international virtual teams, discussions and projects. Working with their mentor, students may individualize investigations that support transferring credits from their home institution and planning their American degree. They may further individualize the course as appropriate to their educational planning needs and interests.

Note: this course is open to non-matriculated Russian-speaking International Distance Learning students only.
