Online Classroom Environment

Guided by subject matter expert Lead Instructors, students are expected to complete the coursework independently, following a weekly schedule to stay on pace with assignments, projects, and exams. The instructional team hosts regular conference calls to discuss the current module’s curriculum, present additional resources and topics for students to explore, and hold an open Q&A for student inquiries. In addition, each student is assigned to a dedicated Assistant Instructor. Assistant Instructors hold calls to facilitate peer connection, host case study presentations, and share guidance from their experience working in the holistic nutrition field.


Assessments are focused on critical thinking and engagement through practical and written assignments that allow students to assess, build upon, and apply their firsthand knowledge to future clients. They include traditional written assignments, midterm and final exams, and required online discussion forum participation. Additionally, students are given action-oriented assignments that provide opportunities to practice what they’ve learned and establish themselves as a recognized nutrition and wellness resource in their community.
