March 1-5: Fostering Learning Online (FLO) - The Basics 

Together in this (approximately) 5-hour course on fostering learning online we will look to identify ways of bridging your face-to-face teaching practices to an online learning environment. Critical elements of effective teaching (motivation, communication, and administration) don’t change when you relocate to a virtual classroom environment. The approaches we use to include them DO. This course will help you develop techniques that will protect these elements when you shift to your online classroom.  

This is a short course, which will span 1 week. It is recommended that you allocate approximately 1-hour a day to engage in asynchronous activities. There will be a 1 hour (approximately) live meet-up on the final day. 

Registration is limited to 12 participants and is for Lakehead University faculty and teaching staff. This course runs from March 1st to the 5th.  Additional details will be provided to registrants prior to February 27th.
