Welcome to Creating Engaging Online Learning Activities! We've had a big hiatus from SCoPE seminars, and it's so exciting to be opening up the conversations again!
About this seminar
There are endless ideas for engaging learners online. However, turning those ideas into activities that can be implemented smoothly is a challenge. There are many details to consider, and potentially overlook!
The idea for this SCoPE seminar developed through reflections on a series of online workshops for educators across the British Columbia post-secondary system. In these workshops we experience the benefits of developing and testing online learning activities in a supportive but critical community of peers. It's time to open up those opportunities to everyone!
During this 2-week seminar we will explore, discuss, and create engaging online learning activities together.
