So I've been invited to take part in a week-long training session for this amazing grief-counselling program I've had a small hand in helping with, in the past. I seriously believe that to join in an entire week of developing this program within my native context (I took part in another country, we're now launching the program here in Canada,) it would be awesome and life-changing just to witness the progress, and take part in the process of helping those who have been through trauma. |
Thing is, it takes place during the entire first week of classes for my second semester, beginning in January. I'd be missing out on course overviews, syllabii, and possibly whatever early assignments were given. I am only going to be attending classes four days a week, but that's still five courses - three occuring once a week, and two occuring thrice--so three classes in a row, for two classes. That seems like a lot to miss...
TQC, I'm really conflicted. Should I just say yes and sign up for the training program and then later on e-mail my new professors and ask for e-mails containing any syllabi or pertinent information/assignments from the first week, or is this really bad academic form and will I miss too much?
