Creating Engaging Online Learning Activities: Aug 1-15, 2015

Facilitator: Sylvia Riessner Sylvia Riessner


​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.

This seminar will begin August 1, 2015. Registration is not required; just show up!
