Frequently Asked Questions
How much time can I expect to spend?
You can expect to spend about two to three hours per week working through materials and completing learning tasks.
What types of learning resources will I complete each week?
While no two workshops are the same, they share some common elements. Each workshop presents curated learning materials geared toward busy working professionals. This means that instead of research articles, the resources you complete in a given week might consist of TED Talks, blog posts, articles, how-to video demonstrations by experts in the field (including your instructor), and/or free online tools the instructor has decided to leverage for the workshop. And yes, you may occasionally encounter a research article, but we include them sparingly.
What types of activities and assignments will I complete each week?
The types of activities and tasks you complete will vary based on the nature of the content. For example, in the analytics-themed workshops, you may encounter coding exercises and/or ungraded knowledge checks at different points during the workshop. You may also encounter small projects geared toward applying what you’re learning to a context that’s meaningful to you. In workshops focusing on soft skills, you’ll have opportunities to take stock of your current practices (e.g., leading remote teams and enhancing your cultural awareness), learn about new approaches, and try them out.
Will I get feedback from an instructor?
Yes. The instructor’s role in the workshop is akin to that of a coach. She or he may provide written feedback on discussions or other writing tasks you complete and share during the workshop. Feedback is intended to help you further enhance specific skills or to direct you toward solutions when you get stuck. The instructor may offer virtual check-in opportunities and may also provide written feedback on tasks you are asked to submit. In those cases, he or she will provide guidance on how to access that feedback.
Will I be given a grade at the end?
No. Unlike a course, a Career Resiliency Workshop is not a graded experience. You’ll receive feedback from your instructor on specific tasks intended to help you enhance your skills or to clarify or elaborate on workshop themes. If you complete tasks and actively participate throughout the workshop, you’ll receive a personalized action plan and a digital badge at the end of the experience. The action plan helps you build on what you learned in the workshop by identifying strengths and opportunities to build on your experience and knowledge. The digital badge is a microcredential from Northeastern that describes what skills you are developing and allows you to share your achievement with others via digital networks.
Do I have to be online at specific times?
No. You work through the materials and tasks at your own pace within the week they’re assigned. Some workshops have opportunities to connect synchronously online with the instructor and other participants, but participation in these sessions is optional.
What do I need to do to earn the badge?
Participants who complete assigned tasks during the workshop will earn a Level 2 digital badge. A Level 2 badge signifies you participated fully, had opportunities to practice and apply your skills, and received feedback from your instructor.
