FLO MicroCourse logo

How might we more deeply understand and connect with our students and colleagues when teaching online or face-to-face? Deepening our empathy for others is one way we can grow as inclusive facilitators of learning.

In this free, one-week microcourse, you’ll explore how to use the design thinking skill of reframing to expand your thinking and increase your empathy for others, to unlock potentially new and innovative solutions to current challenges.

This course includes mostly asynchronous activities which means you can spread your 6 to 13 hours of participation over the whole week. Synchronous sessions will be recorded. Spreading out participation over each day is ideal.

FLO MicroCourse logo

Facilitating 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.

Micro certifications have their origins in open badges which can be defined as “a digital representation of a learning outcome” (Janko, 2014) but what does this really mean and how can micro certifications be used in British Columbia post-secondary system? In this one-week FLO MicroCourse, we will refine the definition of micro certifications with a 2020 British Columbia lens, examine best practices from other regions and identify at least one feasible application of micro certifications to our province.

This course includes mostly asynchronous activities which means you can spread your 6 to 13 hours of participation over the whole week. Synchronous sessions will be recorded. Spreading out participation over each day is ideal.

In this course, we explore the purpose, intent, and ways of acknowledging traditional Indigenous lands. A meaningful acknowledgment involves locating the self in who we are as human beings, i.e. our ethics, values, and beliefs about how we are connected with one another, and the places where we live and work.
