This non-degree certificate program will consist of three 38-hour courses for a total of 114 hours. The overall goal of the program is to improve the settlement experiences of refugees by strengthening the programs and services that assist them. Participants will build on their own professional experiences. They will better understand: national and international legal and immigration policies and their rationale, the experiences of refugees from diverse backgrounds, and be able to recognize and address the psychosocial needs of their clients.
Pedagogy: The Program will be offered online via Moodle. It will consist of a combination of readings, power point presentations with synched media-site live video presentation of the instructor. In order to ensure/encourage interaction, on-line discussions will be used to enhance feedback between instructor and students.
