A National Center For Student Life online course is very easy to use. Once you register and log-in to the course website, youll have access to all course documents. Youll watch the course welcome video, review the user guide, print your course materials, and then youre ready to begin.
For each module, first watch the 40 minute presentation on the topic, then work through the activity or case study. After that, we encourage you to review the processing questions to deepen your understanding of the module material and then pause to consider how youll implement the strategies youve learned from the module.
Next, you can complete the Check on Learning, a quick five-question quiz at the end of each module to gauge your understanding of the module content. After you complete the Check on Learning, youre ready to move on to the next module. Your scores on the Checks on Learning do not affect your final assessment score to receive the Certified Student Leader designation.
After youve completed all eight modules, youll want to review your handouts and notes before proceeding to the final assessment.
After passing the final assessment with an 80% or better score, youll be able to print out your certificate, supporting your new designation as a Certified Student Leader®.
