    Course was very enlightening on just how indepth and sometimes difficult writing WEP goals is.

  2. Tonia – Centerburg Local (verified owner)

    Clear explanation of the WEP

  3. Karen – Centerburg Local (verified owner)

    I thought this was great and one of the most useful courses I’ve taken. It answered a lot of questions about WEPs and gave very realistic, useful ideas. Even though I do not directly write WEPs, this spurred me to think about goals that would be helpful for some of my current students, particularly a couple of specific affective goals.

    interviewers ask questions to learn more about you and to find out things other than what may be on your application or resume. Interviewers may ask about your course selection to learn more about your personality, interests and goals. This question may help them gauge your interest in or passion for a particular subject or field.

    Very good

  15. Katherine – WESTERN BROWN LOCAL (verified owner)

    I felt that there was very good information in this course but I feel that the delivery, at times, was slightly rude in the way that she tended to diminish the difficulty of goals that are written and designed for students that aren’t WEP goals. I can’t really put my finger on it but her delivery was someone rude to me on some things.

    Very informative
