Program Details


The ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE series features courses divided into weekly, live evening sessions held online, with assignments before each live session. Every live presentation is recorded and archived, so even if you miss a broadcast, you can view the slides and hear the instructor's commentary and Q&A with participants at your convenience.


You will be invited to participate in online discussions between sessions with the instructors and your colleagues, and you can submit questions to the instructors at any time during the program. All archived sessions, readings and assignments also will be available to you for weeks after the program concludes, to give you maximum flexibility, convenience, and opportunity to learn.


Participants can complete the assignments to earn 20 CE (ADA CERP) credits for each ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE course, or they can choose to audit, getting full access to the materials but without completing the work or receiving the CEUs. The tuition remains the same regardless of this.
