LS609 Online Learning Is Fun Again!
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Thursday, March 17
Despite its growing popularity, online facilitation remains a mystery to many faculty and workplace learning professionals. Often restricted by learning management system platforms, online facilitators feel constrained when designing, developing, and delivering high-impact, high-engagement learning events.
In this session, you will learn how to be more creative in an online environment. You will hear the story of how students in a graduate course on social learning walked away from a university’s learning management system and distributed their learning across multiple social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Padlet, NetVibes, YouTube, Pinterest, and over 20 more locations. The students had a dynamic and learning-rich semester, earning the hashtag, #LearningIsFunAgain. You will explore how to get the best out of facilitated instruction and community-based learning in one flexible model of instruction that can be easily adopted in higher education and workplace learning classrooms alike.
In this session, you will learn:
- How facilitated instruction can occur outside of a learning management system
- How to incorporate social media tools into your instructor-led course design
- How to empower learners to own their own learning
- How to develop and sustain the four primary relationships in a learner-centered classroom
