On October 1st I will be a student again! I decided to get my M.Ed. in Learning and Technology from Western Governors University. I have been a fan of WGU's competency-based structure for quite some time now so I decided to "walk the walk" and register.
At this point I have only gone through the admissions process and the Education Without Boundaries orientation, but I have to say I am pretty impressed. My enrollment counselor was great to work with and was very helpful. Now that I am officially a WGU student I have been assigned a student mentor and will meet with this person once a week for at least the first semester. Then as I start individual courses I will be assigned course mentors, who are subject matter experts, who will help guide me through the courses.
I am very excited about the program and this new educational experience!
