NON-TRADITIONAL CREDIT EARNING OPPORTUNITIES
An Independent Study Course is a course mutually developed and designed by a student and supervising instructor to explore a subject area that is not offered in a course already being taught in Parkway. The following procedure should be followed:
- Student needs to contact the appropriate teacher to discuss possible areas of study.
- Together, the teacher and student in conjunction with the Department Chair should define the proposal with the following: Desired Results; Assessment Evidence; and Learning Plan, outlining specific assignments, topics, timelines, and meetings for which the student will receive ½ credit (per semester).
- The final Independent Study Course Proposal must be submitted via this link.
