Important

The course content is split into sections called “Modules”. There are 5 main modules in the Canvas course, each dedicated to a different phase of the SPACE model for applying OBM.

To complete the course, students must:

  • Complete all reading, videos, assignments, and the discussion question in each Phase module (Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3, Phase 4, and Phase 5) in Canvas.
  • Watch the bonus videos of the instructors answering FAQ related to each phase (5 bonus videos total)
  • When finished, submit the Feedback Survey.
  • When finished with the Feedback Survey, submit the Course Completion Survey. 

Students may spend an estimated 2.5 - 4.5 hours per Phase module.

Because this is a beta test and content is still being modified, the modules will become available to students as the course progresses (i.e., every 10 days a new module opens). 

The timeline below includes suggested due dates for all required content. Students may progress at a slower pace if they wish. All required content must be completed/submitted by 11:59 PM Friday, April 30 (EST).
