Introduction to eLearning (EPOL 485) Seeks to build foundational knowledge in areas associated with online teaching and learning and distance education in both higher education and workplace learning settings. Major areas of interest include the overview of online teaching and learning strategies, digital learning system design, digital media for learning, and evaluation online teaching and learning.

Adult & Professional Education (EPOL 579) Synchronous attendance required. Moodle LMS.

Program Evaluation (EPOL 594) This course examines models and methods of evaluating programs, processes, and products in broadly-defined organizations situated in various operational contexts (eg., education, business, government, NGO). Particular emphasis is given to topics of formative and summative evaluation, frameworks for program evaluation, quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection and analysis, communicating and reporting evaluation findings, and the ethics and standards of evaluation practice. The underlying philosophy of the course is that evaluation can be the catalyst for organizational learning to facilitate intended changes, especially when initiated by those in training and organization development positions.

Independent Study (EPOL 595) Offers opportunity and challenge of self-directive, independent study; develops the individual's ability as an independent student and enables the student to pursue needed study in a field in which appropriate courses are not being offered during a given term.
