January 30 – June 16, 2017
This Michigan focused 400-hour problem-based course is learner driven through utilization of relevant, real-life, work based problems wherein each student is responsible for his/her own learning. Students work in collaborative learning groups with a maximum of six students and one instructor/facilitator per group. They are actively engaged in problem-solving, in-depth discussions, and critical thinking activities throughout the course. Concepts and skills, once introduced, will be revisited and practiced in more and more complex problematic situations as the weeks progress.
Curriculum delivery uses a blend of classroom and cutting edge distance learning technologies. During the weeks of distance learning students are required to commit 40 hours per week which means being available between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday to complete a variety of course assignments that may include distance learning group meetings, field trips, and/or one-day classroom sessions.
In addition to an outstanding cadre of experts in the field, faculty includes a 1:6 facilitator to learner ratio. Facilitators include:
- Chad Connelly: Sergeant, East Lansing Police Department
- Cindy Herfert: School of Criminal Justice – Outreach Specialist, Michigan State University
- Marcy Kuehn: Lieutenant, Port Huron Police Department
- Audrey Martini: School of Criminal Justice – Outreach Specialist, Michigan State University
