Learning Format For Pedagogy and Learning Graduate Degree Coursework

Our graduate degree in pedagogy and learning is designed to be completed 100% online. You’ll complete readings, assignments and discussions on Blackboard, individual projects and presentations, quizzes and tests throughout the semester. Recorded lectures via Mediasite will connect you with professors and other students on your own time. In all classes except BLED 578, your participation, using Blackboard and other resources like YouTube and Collaborate, related to recorded lectures can be done at your convenience, rather than during a specific time. BLED 578 is a synchronous class and needs to be completed at the offered time. If this requirement is standing in the way of starting this program, please apply anyway and reach out to our department. We are happy to work with you if you have extenuating circumstances. This program requires passing comprehensive exams. Comprehensive exams are offered once during each fall and spring semester. If you are outside of Portales, contact our department for more information on taking your comprehensives exams from your location.

Advising for Pedagogy and Learning Students

If you are taking the time to complete an advanced study program, we know you want not only the benefits from our classes, but also our faculty’s professional experience. To support you, we offer advising meetings via email and phone. We want you to feel connected and prepared to create and defend your thesis or complete your comprehensive exams.

Pedagogy and Learning Resources and Academic Support

At ENMU, we want to make sure you get the help you need. We offer several tutoring services, including the Online Writing Center (OWL), which is exclusively for distance education students. The OWL is available to help you improve your writing and help you communicate clearly for written, school-related projects and assignments. We also have online databases, journal articles and eBooks accessible through the Golden Student Success Center. Since ENMU has a dedicated distance education librarian on staff, you’ll always have the help you need to take advantage of library resources.
