My graduate school offered alternative ways of earning credit. One of those ways was a conference course. Here is the syllabus developed by my program for a conference they coordinate. I earned credit for that conference and then used this as a guide for my proposal for this second conference course that was specifically aligned with the change I seek to make in the world as a leader in the self-directed education movement. Here is my write-up on three of the conference sessions I attended and below are two videos in which I synthesize my key learnings from my interview mini-project.
