Steady does it: Easy progress planning - At-a-glance and up-to-date views of your progress are always available, so you stay motivated and aware of what lies ahead. And if life throws the occasional obstacle your way, our program makes it easy to re-plan your education path and stay on track.
You’re never alone: Student and faculty support - Sometimes you just need to raise your hand and get some help. We offer access to the other learners in your program, as well as your Faculty Coach and Walden’s Faculty Subject-Matter experts. Support with specific questions, or encouragement during a challenging assessment, all just a click away.
Be social: Share your Tempo experience - Letting friends, family and coworkers know you’re working on your degree is important: they’ll offer support and encouragement, plus be interested in your progress! It helps keep you motivated, plus gets the word out that your employability is on a big upswing. You’ll have a Tempo Learning public profile that you can share to announce milestones via Twitter, Facebook, and the all-important LinkedIn.
Our goal is to see you succeed. Our mission is to make it achievable. One important factor of that is affordability. You pay a 3-month subscription rate, and can complete as many competencies as your time and experience allows. You only pay for the amount of time you need to complete your degree, with no hidden fees or costs.
Your subscription period will simply renew every three months until you are finished demonstrating all the competencies in your program. And with all the support that is on hand, you’ll have everything you need to move forward with your education—and get ahead with your career.
Success requires partnership. The Walden Academic Coach is your dedicated partner throughout the life of your program. Coaches serve as advisors, mentors, and ultimately are champions focused on your success. They work with you each week to ensure you are getting the appropriate support and resources to make meaningful progress.
Accelerated learning requires timely and meaningful feedback. Walden Faculty Assessors have deep expertise in one or more competency areas and evaluate your work with carefully designed rubrics in order to provide you with meaningful feedback in 72 hours. Timely and specific feedback is critical in the Tempo Learning model, in which you have multiple attempts to demonstrate your knowledge and skill of a particular competency.
Meaningful learning requires access to the experts. Walden Faculty Subject Matter Experts are faculty members who have deep expertise in one or more competency areas. They hold weekly office hours, webinars, online Q&As, and individual work sessions with students. They help you with any questions or challenges you may have in learning the knowledge or skills you will need to demonstrate proficiency in each competency.
