On Your Own, But Not Alone

The Orientation Modules, Foundation Labs, and Enrichment Micro-Courses are designed for asynchronous engagement, meaning you can login and participate on any day and time that is convenient for you. However, community engagement and discussion will be encouraged throughout! For those interested in a more collaborative experience, a facilitator will monitor each Lab and Micro-Course to provide light guidance and feedback on a weekly basis.

The Capstone Project models use of an ‘assessment task’ as evidence of what you’ve personally learned through your engagement in THRIVE. This project will support your planning and development of at least one Online Class for Fall, but we hope you find what you create transferrable into all your Fall Courses. You can work on your Capstone while you engage in programming throughout THRIVE, or engage first, and then focus on your Capstone.
