Abstract

This exploratory participatory study reports the reactions of twenty-two people from a thirty-three member master's degree cohort, offered in Foundations of Education, Northern Illinois University. A strong majority reported that a weekend course delivery in a closed cohort arrangement was a positive factor in their decision to complete all of the course work. Participants also felt that the academic guality of the instructors was excellent. Suggestions for improvement included a different seguencing of courses and earlier and more explicit direction in thesis preparation. The author concluded that most of the other members of the cohort program agreed with her positive evaluation of the weekend delivery model that included two highly qualified facilitators.
