The Kairos learning experience schedule should be used for planning purposes in conversation with your mentor team. It is intended to provide notice of upcoming Kairos learning experiences, but it is not intended to provide detailed information like topics to be covered, required/recommended textbooks, or the course syllabus.
Often specific details about upcoming Kairos learning experiences are not available until 3-6 weeks prior to the start of the learning experience.
When additional details are available, the ways to learn more include:
Registration for most learning experiences opens about 4 weeks prior to the learning experience start date. To register, find the learning experience(s) in which you wish to enroll by searching the Pathwright library. Then click on the learning experience path, select the current cohort (look to the right side of the “About” tab), and enroll.
It is always best to be in communication with your mentor team about your upcoming plans; this includes talking about the scheduled learning experiences you’d like to take and how the learning experience(s) might contribute to your plans and progress. Your mentor team will access to the scheduled learning experiences you are taking on Pathwright, so we strongly encourage you to talk with them about what you are learning and how it integrates into your program outcomes and degree program path.
Not all learning scheduled experiences have weekly meeting dates. If “TBD” is used in place of day and time, it either means that:
Scheduled learning experiences are similar to what most people might call a “course” in the traditional sense of the word. It has a title like “Mission of the Church” and a defined meeting schedule (e.g., Mondays in September, October, and November from 9-11:30 a.m. CT). In Kairos, we refer to these as learning experiences because in most programs they do not award “credit” in the way that traditional courses do. Instead, they are opportunities to walk through material related to an outcome or student learning goal using a defined schedule. In that sense, they are tools to help students develop proficiency in content, character, and craft within particular outcomes.
Focused learning experiences are similar to scheduled learning experiences except that they typically tend to focus on a narrower topic and are often a shorter length of time (ranging from a day to a few sessions). Most people might liken these learning experiences to “short-term intensives” or “seminars” or “workshops.”
If you have enrolled in a learning experience by mistake or need to have one removed from your path, please email email@example.com and provide detailed information on the path to be removed.
If you have additional questions about the learning experience schedule, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your questions and inquiries will be directed to the person(s) best suited to help or provide assistance.
The student and mentor resources page on Pathwright is a great place to access links to other helpful resources, including the academic calendar which often lists future gathering dates beyond those found within the learning experience schedule.
