FLO MicroCourses are part of the Facilitating Learning Online family of courses. Unlike the longer and more comprehensive FLO courses, MicroCourses are one week in length, single-topic, and designed to give you an immediate and practical jump on your course preparation and facilitation.
All FLO courses are built on a foundation of social constructivist perspectives, infused with a recognition of the importance of evidence-based practices, the power of shared reflection and inquiry, and the need for personally meaningful learning experiences.
A MicroCourse is a learning community that incorporates these qualities and expectations:
- Each participant has knowledge and experiences to contribute
- There is willingness to share
- There is a mutual exchange in the peer review process -- you receive feedback and you also give feedback
MicroCourse facilitators volunteer their time and expertise; this is an opportunity to practice and advance the activity design and facilitation skills they learned in FLO courses!
