FLO MicroCourse: Liberating Structures

Join our next FLO MicroCourse on Liberating Structures. Our FLO MicroCourses have been designed to focus on specific topics and learning needs and to develop Digital Literacy in faculty and educators. 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. In this FLO MicroCourse, you will learn what Liberating Structures are and why they can be so powerful for online and face-to-face meetings and learning events; design a group activity using a Liberating Structure; experience a few key Liberating Structures online; and share ideas and advice on the application of Liberating Structures in your own context. Expect to spend at least five hours for course activities during the week. There are suggested activities to do each day between Monday and Friday. You might need to invest more time if you’re unfamiliar with Moodle or have no prior teaching and learning experience.

There will be one 90-minute synchronous session held on May 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT. Attendance is optional but highly recommended.
