This course is designed to help new and experienced instructors achieve success in facilitating learning in an online environment. It introduces participants to key online learning concepts and principles and provides participants with many opportunities to develop their online facilitation skills, as well as opportunities to network and share ideas with other new and experienced online facilitators. The course is designed around "mini-sessions" - short online discussions that will give participants an opportunity to practice online facilitation techniques and receive feedback geared to growth and improvement.
