Course Description

We’re so glad to have you on board and working with us as NTEN Faculty member! Please fill out the following form so we can get started creating or updating your course.

Please note that we will edit the description and other items so they are consistent with our style. If we make any substantive changes, we’ll make sure to send it to you before publishing.

    • Titles should be no more than 35 characters (about 6 words).
    • Do not use "intro" or "advanced." (We've found that those words inhibit enrollment.)
    • Word count should be between 125 to 175 words.
    • Make sure to keep the perspective of the reader in mind: Why should they care about this?
    • What's in it for them? How will this be valuable to their careers and/or their organizations?
    • Use "you" language. Avoid phrasing like "participants will…"
    • Explain what foundational knowledge should they already have, if any.
    • Avoid jargon. Use plain language and make it as simple and easy to understand as possible.
    • Try to be engaging—what’s the problem your participants are trying to solve, and how can you describe that in a compelling, engaging way?
  • Skills
    Each skill should be 1 to 2 words.
    Skill descriptions should be no more than 20 words and succinctly explain the skill within the context of your course.
