In June we kicked off our first MicroCourse! It was called “Create your course intro video”
There are several reasons for offering MicroCourses. Here are the top three:
- They’re short, manageable chunks of productive learning
- They provide a taste before committing to a full FLO course — experience facilitated, active, peer-supported, outcome-based learning
- They provide an opportunity to practice facilitation
The level of participation in the course was perfect — enough to make it interesting but not so many we felt overwhelmed. Registrants showed up from a variety of institutions, including out of province and international. As always, you expect more registrants than active participants in a free course, but the ratio was good. We collected eleven video projects and all were peer reviewed.
This log was captured during the week of the course. As an open course, the resource will continued to be viewed.
How did the participants feel about the course?
Friendly congenial group and instructor energy, great feedback and this was something I had been intending to work on for a long time – the course gave me the motivation to plunge in and start making intro videos!
