Receive Graduate Credit
All TRTs will register for the online graduate course and will be required to complete the reading and discussion requirements. The 160-hour project and lesson plan produced by the TRTs will be used as assignments for the purpose of the graduate course. The Continuing and Professional Education Office (CPE) from the University of Colorado Denver will provide instruction and evaluation of the projects and assignments. The online graduate course will require approximately 45 hours of participant time including reading assignments, online discussion, interaction with course instructor and classmates, and completion of course assignments.
CPE will provide each TRT with login information to the portal where they will be working on their project over the summer. CPE will then provide instructions on how to register for graduate credit.
This online course will support your experience working within the National Park and assisting rangers (the TRT experience). You will collect and share content, artifacts, and experiences on a group interactive site. You will also complete a short video journal log for your classroom and create a park based project as determined by you and the park you are working in.
If you have any questions about the online modules and/or graduate credit option please contact CPE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
