Why doesn't my DPL registration pay for the credits?
Credits are awarded by the University of Colorado Denver, the institutional host of Digital Pedagogy Lab. The Lab itself is not a credentialing body, and registration fees paid to the Lab are part of a special budget reserved to ensure the event can grow and change in response to the community.

Fees paid to CU Denver are minimal, and cover the cost of transcripting and assessment review.

What's involved if I want two credits?
Digital Pedagogy Lab represents 20 hours of contact/seat time (approximately 4 hours per event day), even in its online format. Thus, simply by attending, you are qualifying for two hours of either graduate or continuing education credit. There is no formal assessment for this option, though we do hope that you'll participate as fully as you can during that week.

Once you complete the Lab, you will enroll in the Digital Pedagogy Lab course at CU Denver to receive credit. But no additional work will be asked of you.

What's involved if I want three credits?
In order to earn a full 3 credits, you will not only attend Digital Pedagogy Lab, but you will be asked to complete a project for assessment. You'll enroll in the Digital Pedagogy Lab course at CU Denver, and then work with the Lab's director and other staff to complete your work. The project you choose must represent 10 hours of study, research, creation, etc. For more information about the assessment, see the DPL4Credit Assessment page.
