In asynchronous courses, there are as many ways to launch a discussion as there are topics to discuss. Even if the activity itself is anchored in carefully selected background reading and resources, the words and media you use to invite learners to engage can be what makes your course active and memorable.

Think about a collaborative discussion you would like to launch (any topic!). Write a compelling discussion prompt. Then invite others to comment on their willingness to engage based on your springboard tactics.

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.
