Becoming a Facilitating Teacher in Today’s World
eNetLearning Certified Facilitators Provided for Each Course
This six-week e-course is designed for educators who want to facilitate an online course or offer a blended experience that includes online work to enhance student learning. The information, resources and strategies offered in this course will help teachers use their newly acquired online facilitation skills to take their teaching to a higher level.
Course resources and activities will encourage deep reflection and discussion about creating successful learning communities, promoting collaboration, and enhancing instructional techniques. Where appropriate, it draws on free, web-based tools that support the pedagogical focus of each session. Each session will also address how to effectively integrate mobile devices to extend teaching and learning. Participants will work both individually and collaboratively throughout the course. As a final project our BFT Action Plan will be completed as a synthesis of what’s learned in each session.
