The Saturday Residency courses use a blended model that combines online learning with three virtual meetings per term. The virtual meetings are mandatory and accessed through Microsoft Teams Saturday, Sept. 25, Oct. 30, and Dec. 4, 2021. Session D courses cover the 8-week term and only meet twice on Saturday, Oct. 30 and Dec. 4.
The virtual meeting schedule is broken down into three cores with an hour for lunch between the cores. Students are required to attend during their scheduled class time and may register for one course from each core.
Each course meets for 1 hour and 30 minutes. During class, students will meet virtually with their instructor and fellow classmates and work on projects and assignments.
During the lunch break from 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m., students are encouraged to attend the "Lunch and Learn" sessions that offer a variety of professional and personal enrichment workshops and guest speaker presentations. This is an excellent opportunity for students to network and learn practical skills and knowledge to apply to the workplace and everyday life.
