FLO MicroCourse – Open Options to Enrich your Career @ Asynchronous
Jan 25 – Jan 31 all-day

FLO-MicroCourseFacilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourses are short, single-topic, hands-on, practical, and free. In one week you will have an opportunity to dip into the FLO experience and leave with something practical and useful for your own teaching practice.

Are you looking for ways to improve your teaching practices or develop your digital literacies? Are you one of the 48 percent of BC faculty surveyed recently by BCcampus (see Faculty Pivot to Online Teaching) who want “…access to free professional development for teaching online?”

Join us as we explore the amazing diversity of open or free options to enhance your career and broaden your perspectives. In this short week, we’ll introduce you to a wide variety of options to learn and develop your professional practice in new ways. You will share experiences, explore open resources and activities that you can use to develop your knowledge and skills, deepen or diversify your experience, and craft a new plan for the future.

This course is primarily asynchronous but includes an optional one-hour synchronous session (that will be recorded.) Spreading out participation over each day is ideal.

Facilitating Learning Online (FLO) MicroCourses are short, single topic, hands on, practical, and free. Over the course of one week, you will have the opportunity to dip your toes into the FLO experience and leave with something practical and useful for your own teaching practice. Do you want to create a great first impression in your online course? Create an introduction video that excites your learners about what’s ahead. Learn what goes into the process, then DO IT! This course includes mostly asynchronous activities, which means that you can spread your five to seven hours of participation over the whole week. Ideally, you would participate a little each day.

An optional synchronous session is planned for Monday, February 8 at 7 p.m. PST. This session will be recorded for those who cannot attend.

This event is free. To ensure we have an inclusive and welcoming environment for all, we’ve added registration to our online office sessions.

FLO Friday — Giving Meaningful Feedback with Monica Morris
Feb 19 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Audience: Faculty who want to hone their skills in facilitating learning online.

Join us as we explore the topic of giving meaningful feedback. As feedback is an integral part of the learning process, we will explore questions such as, “What is feedback? How do we give meaningful feedback? How can we apply current research on giving feedback to our interactions with learners and others?” This FLO Friday promises to be interactive, so please be ready to share your thoughts and insights on this most important topic!
