HeinemannU Online Course and Practicum

Course Description
This course offers educators the opportunity to earn university credits by developing practical activities based on a HeinemannU online course.

Credit Information
Chapman University will award 2-3 semester hours of graduate level elective credit based upon successful completion of course requirements. These credits are professional development units that are not part of a degree program but instead are primarily used for professional advancement (such as salary increment steps and recertification). Students should seek approval of appropriate district or college officials before enrolling in these courses to satisfy any degree, state credential, or local school district requirements. State licensing departments vary regarding their criteria for credit acceptance, and some states may not accept credit from universities that are located outside the state.

Course Requirements
  1. Participate in the online course, and complete all assignments within the course.
  2. Complete a typed written report related to the online course topic.
  3. The report must include a Title Page with your name, address for sending grades, social security number, title of online course, course start date, and a brief (one paragraph) description of the course. The title page must also include the grade level, number of students, and any special information about the student population (e.g. at-risk, ESL, etc.).
  4. The paper must be at least 3 full pages long for 2 credits and a minimum of 5 full pages long for 3 credits (not including title page or documentation), typed and single-spaced.

    3. Reflection: Discuss your opinions and reactions to the course and the literature you reviewed. What additional information did you learn from the literature? How did it enhance the course information?
