UCLA APIA Advantage Class Has Begun

Updated 9/23/2010: I just spoke with a representative from UCLA and she said that if an au pair would still like to enroll in this class, she may do so this week.


The Fall 2010 UCLA Au Pair in America Advantage Course

begins on September 20th and runs until January 31st.

It’s not too late for au pairs to enroll at www.uclaextension.edu/aupairs.

This interdisciplinary online course is designed specifically for au pairs who are required to continue their education as a part of their experience in the U.S.The 19-week program is in a blended online format, with media-rich, self-paced sessions and some instructor-led, cohort-based sessions. Participants read lessons, write, share resources, network with one another, and collaborate on special projects. They explore web links, play games, and take virtual field trips, all designed to further their understanding of U.S. culture.

The Community Involvement segment of the program takes au pairs into face-to-face contact with the community. Au pairs are required to do a Global Awareness presentation, volunteer at local organizations, and participate in historical and cultural activities. Au pairs will relate these experiences to their academic coursework. A follow-up writing assignment will consist of a reflection on the community-based experience.

Participants who successfully complete the program receive 6 quarter units (4 semester units) and earn a certificate of completion from UCLA Extension.Participants also have access to a UCLA Extension transcript, should they wish to request articulation of this program into a degree program at another college or university.
