Distance Education/Online Art Therapy
1) Distance Education
The one year course and the diploma course are also formatted as distance learning with no time on campus required. You can start anytime, anywhere in the world and at your own pace. We do highly recommend however, that you participate in the two day introductory course face-to-face if travel does not pose a problem.
CECAT has designed this inspiring distance education package to provide greater flexibility for international art therapy students or those who don t live in the wider Sydney/Newcastle/Mid North Coast area in NSW (Australia). On-campus students meet for one weekend a month. Distance education students receive each of the 10/15 modules, in their own time, via email and are then contacted for one-on-one discussions of the module s content. Based on this, students will receive the content of 10/15 modules as for on-campus students and in addition receive individual one-on-one tuition without having to attend in person.
What equipment do I need?
You need a computer with internet access, a headset and a webcam. Many computers, particularly laptops, have a webcam and microphone already installed. Currently, the best software for live chat, and also ensuring the utmost confidentiality, appears to be Skype.
Skype is a free, high quality video conferencing program that is quick and easy to install. With Skype you can type, talk, or talk and see each other via a webcam. Download it from www.skype.com .
The practical component of the course will require you to undertake drawings and paintings in your own time, which will then be reviewed as part of our one-on-one sessions. The individual tuition will take place through emails, phone calls and/or Skype video link ups.
