There are so many fantastic story ideas for teaching being generated! It seems a shame that they're tucked in a forum. I've been fiddling with ways to pull everything into a single resource that can be easily referred to, but I haven't found an ideal solution. 

Do you have suggestions for harvesting the ideas into a format that will be a useful MicroCourse takeaway? Any volunteers to take on this side project?


I was wondering that as well, Arley -- thinking more about accessbility than keeping noise levels down. 

We're using Kaltura and so far I don't see an automated captioning feature. I'll keep looking though! 

Meanwhile, I hope you have a headset or earbuds. 


Well that was fun! Thank you Beth and Leva and everyone who joined in!

If you're interested in seeing an online synchronous Users Experience Fishbowl in action while tuning into the facilitators' reflections and participants' questions and comments about this MicroCourse here is the recording


Users Experience Fishbowl on Friday, June 14th at 11:00am (PT)

This is a meta-level discussion. Beth and Leva will take 8-10 minutes to describe their experiences facilitating the MicroCourse, reflect on what they learned about using LS and on using a new asynchronous online format, etc. 

What went well? What might they have done differently? 

(Note: This is a meta on the process of the session, not on the content that was discussed.)

Facilitators invite participants to pick up the mic and “enter fishbowl” to share questions and experience; max of 4 mics on at any given time. 

Here's a direct link to the Collaborate ULTRA room. It is available beginning 10:30 PT, session begins at 11:00. We hope you'll join in! 


Thank you everyone for your amazing contributions, questions, and peer feedback in this MicroCourse! And a round of applause for Beth Cougler Blom and Leva Lee for your great course design and facilitation. I predict this one will be repeated in the future. :) 

This course will remain available to you so feel free to come back to revisit anytime. Plus there's more! You're also invited to an Open Fishbowl on Friday, June 14th at 11:00am (PT). This will be an opportunity to participate in the course debrief while experiencing yet another Liberating Structure and in an online synchronous environment. Here's a direct link to the Collaborate ULTRA room. We hope you'll join in! 

MicroCourses will start up again after the summer break. Meanwhile, registration is open for these FLO courses:

  • FLO Design  - September 23 - October 18, facilitated by Karen Brooke and TBA
  • FLO Fundamentals - October 28 - November 22, facilitators TBA
