Can I work at my own pace?

 

We don’t allow learners to “work at their own pace” thru this course. The weekly discussion forums require you to post and response to one another posts in the course, and the faculty must provide feedback on each learner’s assignments each week. For these reasons and to assure success, all learners must stay within the synchronous environment and on schedule with all the other students in the course.

What is the difference between the INMED Self-Paced Courses and the INMED Hybrid Courses?

 

The INMED Hybrid Courses address similar subjects as the INMED Self-Paced Courses but in much greater depth. The INMED Hybrid Courses include skill stations, workshops, literature critique, rigorous exams, active participation of the instructors, and networking with like-minded student colleagues. In particular:

  • The Hybrid Courses have an instructor who can assist students with their questions. The INMED Self-Paced Courses do not include availability of an instructor.
  • The Hybrid Courses include structured assignments and feedback for each week. The INMED Self-Paced Courses require students to approach learning without such structure.
  • The depth and detail of learning in the Hybrid Courses is much greater than the Self-Paced Courses, and includes protocol development, survey performance, and subject analysis.
  • The Hybrid Courses includes classroom workshop activities that are pivotal in application of the information.
  • The Hybrid Courses provide opportunity to meet and interact with peers in the field
