Those a good three weeks - preparing, facilitating, and following up after synchronous learning sessions. Thanks to the facilitators for facilitating and the reviewers for reviewing. How would it have been if you had played the other role?
Thanks also for some excellent discussion - and for engaging with one another intellectually and as co-learners of new skills. People took chances and it was great. We learned a lot from you - I hope you did too..
Please consider the course still running through the weekend and then available to you ever after to log into the content that you created.
You were an excellent cohort - we hope to see you in more FLO courses. Good luck in your practice with synchro activities - the more you do it the better you'll get.
Take good care.

Here's a link to the recording of our closing synchro meet May 28 2020.
Thank you Asif and Ross for a great course! I learned tons from everyone! I am glad that we will have access to the contents of this course even once it's completed.
You ask about how it would have been if we took the other role. Before reading your question I was thinking that I now wanted to take the course again being a facilitator so I can practice the skills learnt. Being a new at online facilitation I felt that being a reviewer really allowed me to get a sense to what synchronous sessions are like, what tools are available, how to adapt skills from F2F learning to online learning. The synchronous sessions led by this group served as great models for me, it allowed me to observe and pick what I liked and would use in my own sessions. Now that I have experienced a number of sessions, I feel that I want to apply what I learnt. If I was being a facilitator in this course I don't think my session would have been as great as some of the sessions that I experienced because I felt I still didn't have a good knowledge base when it came to applying technology tools, interactive tools, engaging learners in an online session, and I realize that that there were many tips that were new to me. Now, that I've experienced the course as a reviewer I feel that I have more confidence to be a facilitator.
Thank you for your time!
