Curriculum 2021

Students should expect to spend roughly 20 hours per week in July on their WCMS responsibilities. There are 11 hours per week of highly interactive live class and events, on Wednesdays and Thursdays (July 7/8, 14/15, 21/22, 28/29) 10:30 AM -4:00 PM Pacific. Outside of those 11 hours/week that are consistent for all, students have considerable flexibility in scheduling their remaining 9 hours a week of WCMS responsibilities. In a usual week, roughly 6 of those 9 hours will be spent viewing and taking notes on pre-recorded lectures, and 2-3 hours per week will be spent on working on a team-based project. Details about the team project will be shared only once WCMS opens its remote campus, in the third week of June (June 21-25). Attendance will be expected, and recorded, in the live classes, and for viewing the pre-recorded lecture materials.

In addition to these required events, WCMS will host an optional virtual social hour for all students from 9:30-10:30AM and 4:00-5:00PM on live class days (Wednesday and Thursdays in July). We expect students will want to attend many, but likely not all, of these optional social hours, as they permit students to interact with their peers outside of the classroom setting, and WCMS has planned some guest appearances and prizes for these optional events.

In order to prepare for the session, students should plan to spend roughly 2 hours on Orientation and Welcome programing during the third week of June, but since these activities are presented via on-demand lecture, students will have considerable flexibility in scheduling when to view these materials. Student course materials will be available via our virtual campus, which we will invite students to join during the week of June 21-25. To prepare for the first week of live class, student should anticipate they will have 6 hours of on-demand pre-recorded lecture to view before classes begin on July 7.
