All OPEN NH courses begin with an optional face-to-face orientation, allowing participants to become familiar with course login procedures and overall course requirements. Orientation to the course continues online during the first week, so that participants become familiar with course expectations and get acquainted with their instructor and fellow classmates.

Online Content and Practice
Following the orientation, courses continue for six weeks, emphasizing theory-to-practice applications. Course work includes online discussions, reflections, readings, and projects. Course participants receive a certificate of participation that may be applied to their individual professional development plans.
