Course Description & Learning Goals:

This course is about learning how to (co)facilitate the FLO (Facilitating Learning Online) workshops, which are workshops about learning how to facilitate online learning more effectively. The main focus will be on facilitating FLO – Fundamentals, but we will also explore two other FLO workshops: FLO – Design and FLO – Synchronous.

We will spend 2 weeks in a community of supportive peers, reviewing and planning for our first FLO facilitation experience.

In this course, you will:

  • explore the architecture of the FLO from a facilitator’s perspective
  • learn about the “behind the scenes” work and preparation required to facilitate the FLO
  • participate in a variety of activities designed to get you thinking and preparing for teaching the FLO
  • have an opportunity to actually do some of your own FLO facilitator preparation
