Online learning does not have to be a pale imitation of “real” in-person learning. It is a completely new way of interacting with learners. What if instead of a boring, predictable series of discussion question posts and assignments, your online courses were a dynamic journey that surprises and engages learners? This training will give teachers the confidence to create meaningful online learning experiences. Teachers have the skills to teach; they will see how to transfer those skills to the online classroom and it is not about the technology.
Create courses that wow learners with their interactivity and potent learning experiences.
Reliably build online learning experiences that students love.
Forge online connections to build the teacher-learner relationship as well as a peer community of practice.
Apply key principles of online teaching to create social, cognitive and teaching presence.
Avoid alienating or “turning off” your students to the completely online paradigm.
