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..
