EDLE 504 - Introduction to Higher Education

(3 credits)
This course is designed to provide students an overview of higher education as an environment of learning for a diverse group of learners. This academy comes with its challenges and opportunities for administrators. For graduate learners who have worked or are currently employed in higher education, it provides an opportunity to examine the details of the structures and practices from the leadership perspective. Our focus is primarily the higher education system in the United States, however, we will touch on other systems as points of reference and comparison in what is becoming increasingly a global network of colleges and universities. We welcome those in the class who come from outside the United States to share the variations from these other systems as options for new ways of thinking about the work of the academy. This foundation course will introduce the online format for all courses in the Higher Education concentration. Students will be trained in the application of an electronic portfolio which will be used as the final exit requirement in the higher education concentration. Offered fall semester.
