FAQs about this course


The online format uses Zoom for live (synchronous) instruction. These sessions are interactive and full of discussion, questions, and group activities.

Some courses include pre-recorded videos and content for asynchronous learning to fit your schedule.

You’ll need access to a computer with a consistent internet connection. You’ll also want to have a realistic baby doll with clothing and a diaper, if possible.

You will learn in a cohort of your peers, with time spent in large and small group discussion. Small groups are arranged so that students with similar interests are in the same groups and get to know each other over time. This course is intentionally kept smaller so you will have ample opportunity to come to know your fellow students as you learn together. ​
