Winter 2022 EDUC 401 Riverways Seminars

The following seminars will be offered during Winter Quarter 2022:



Your educational practicum for EDUC 401 will either be in-person or remote, depending on school site COVID-19 policies this Winter.

  • If schools and organizations are open:
    • Riverways Tutors: We’ll help you get set up tutoring in a K-12 classroom or community organization.
    • Dream Project Mentors: You’ll register for EDUC 369 and attend high school mentorship events.
    • Riverways tutors and Dream Project mentors make a minimum commitment of 2-3 hours per week for at least one quarter.
  • If schools and organizations are closed: You’ll be doing the same amount of tutoring or mentoring, just remotely.

Whether virtual or in-person, through your participation, you’ll make a difference for K-12 students in the Seattle area. For EDUC 401 tutors, the number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. Seminars are Credit/No Credit, and are I&S credits. Credit and tutoring requirements are as follows:

  • 1-3 credits*: 20 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 4 credits: 40 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 5 credits: 60 hours of tutoring over the quarter
  • 6 credits**: 80 hours of tutoring over the quarter

A student may opt to register for 1 or 2 credits if it means avoiding an additional registration fee. ** If a student would like to register for more than 6 credits, they should email riverways@uw.edu with the request.

Current EDUC 401 Students: Need to change the number of credits for your seminar? Riverways staff can help you do this for free. Please email riverways@uw.edu before Friday of Week 7.
