First, you have to either create an Art of Education University account or sign into your current account. Then, find the course you want and begin the enrollment process. The enrollment process is completed in just a few steps, which include creating/updating an AOEU account, completing the enrollment agreement, ensuring that an official university transcript has been sent to AOEU’s Registrar, and processing your payment. Each critical step will ensure that you are ready for the AOEU experience!
AOEU courses offer a lot of flexibility. Every course has weekly due dates to keep you on track, and you can work ahead if you want. AOEU uses the online platform Schoology to deliver courses. Guiding information is presented in a syllabus that is provided at the beginning of the course. You will submit your weekly assignments via a social discussion board, where you can read and respond to other participants’ work. It’s very engaging to get feedback from an AOEU instructor and art teachers from all around the world for each and every assignment. For more on the AOEU Experience, click here.
The Art of Education University follows the Carnegie Unit definition of credit hours. Each credit hour is equivalent to fifteen hours of academic engagement (seat time) and thirty hours of preparation (work outside of class). Academic engagement can include viewing lectures, submitting assignments, asking faculty members questions, and participating in an online discussion group. Preparation may include reading texts and web articles and completing assignments. You may naturally work at a faster or slower pace, but the Carnegie Unit is a good rule of thumb when estimating workload.
AOEU’s courses meet many of the common professional needs of practicing art teachers! Each credit is worth 45 hours of professional development contact time. AOEU encourages you to refer to your state and local guidelines, and/or to work with our professional development advisors, who are kept up-to-date on state guidelines.
