Course Description

Facilitating Learning Online – Synchronous is a 3-week course that introduces participants to best practice strategies to plan for, facilitate and follow up after synchronous online learning events. It will help you enhance the skills you need to confidently and effectively facilitate synchronous online learning. It is designed to provide you with opportunities to see and learn from examples of synchronous online facilitation and, if desired, practice synchronous online facilitation skills in a safe environment.

Once enrolled, you will choose to engage with this course via one of two different “tracks”:

Track 1 – Reviewing Participants
