Course Overview & Requirements
Coursework Submission

Create a PDF, JPEG or Word Document including a self-created time log documenting the time you have invested developing/creating activities and/or projects for your classroom or program.


Self-Created Time Log:

Creating your own log allows you the freedom of documenting all the effort and time that you have dedicated to the process of completing your coursework requirements. Your log must be specific and include dates and accomplishments. For each Graduate-Level Credit, document 15 hours of involvement. All your coursework and participation must be away from professional paid hours.

What kind of activities/projects can I document in my log?

Here are a few ideas and suggestions of activities and/or projects that you can use to help you earn credit:


Classroom curriculum, rubrics, lesson plans, educational games/activities, powerpoint presentations, video presentations, worksheets, classroom visuals, classroom assignments and projects, bulletin boards, learning centers, anchor charts, assessments, teacher created books, physical education activities, self evaluation reports, technology related activities, storytelling activities, units of study, STEM related projects, TPRS activities, Common Core activities, etc.


The key to this course is to document 15 hours of  involvement for each credit. All activities, projects, strategies or techniques that shift and empower your professional needs deserve to be recognized!

Whether you spend time brainstorming, researching, reading, typing, writing, attending conferences/workshops for inspiration, watching videos and films, constructing visuals, putting together curriculum/rubrics or any of the ideas listed above, you are able to document all the professional time you have invested amplifying and enriching your professional needs.

Keep in mind: You can also document hours for activities and projects that you have created previously by backtracking the date in your log! However, proof of your completed activities/projects is required.

Please note: We do not limit your creativity. All the professional work that you document may be derived from different topics and subjects. For example, you can document two hours of creating an english or math rubric, one hour of brainstorming and researching strategies for new history curriculum, three hours of constructing/putting together powerpoint presentations for science, or one hour of simply designing a learning center incorporating technology. It may also be that your work is all related to one subject or topic, and that's acceptable too!

Proof for Verification:

To verify that the activities and/or projects in your log have been successfully completed, you will need to submit proof of your choice by attaching photos, documents, explanations/notes, powerpoint presentations, or manuscripts.


Have a different idea?

Email us at with your proposal or call during scheduled telephone hours and receive immediate approval. Simply provide a brief request of what you would like to develop and we will gladly help you get started.

Your coursework can be submitted up to 6 months from registering and extensions are always granted upon request.

Your completed coursework should be saved as a PDF, JPEG or Word Document and include the following:

1. Title page with your Last name, First name, Course Number and Title, Number of Credits, last 4 digits of SSN and Course Beginning/Ending Date.

2. Self-created time-log:15 hours per credit with dates and accomplishments. Include the total number of hours calculated for all coursework (see below).

3. Proof of your completed objectives: photos, documents, notes/explanations, powerpoint presentations, or manuscripts, etc.
