On Line Certificate News

The VCU On Line Certificate in Adult Literacy Program provides a sequence of courses at "cohort tuition rate". Some of the students migrate into the MEd Program after taking one or more online courses. And, conversely, some MEd students substitute an online course for on campus course. Here are two new things happening:

Starting this summer, we are offering a brand new numeracy course, designed by the guru of adult numeracy, Myrna Manley.

We are working with Dr. David Coogan to use the Richmond Jail as an alternative site for the Practicum course.

We are vey excited about both developments. Write to Bill Muth (wrmuth@vcu.edu) or Joanne Huebner (huebnerjm@vcu.edu) for more details!

  1. Exciting news! Will the numeracy course be added to the online program, or is it an option? Is there any plan to have separate ESOL and 'GED' tracks similar to the VAECP?
