Effective teachers are always seeking ways to improve in spite of the time it takes to learn, apply, and reflect. Asking teachers to leave their classrooms or stay after school creates a burden; yet, we still need to provide continuous learning that helps individuals and groups build skills, master new strategies, and hone their craft at a time convenient for them. Online professional learning can help meet these goals, but designing meaningful online learning experiences is easier said than done. It takes specific knowledge and skills that most educators have not experienced or developed yet.

 

LFTX Online Course Design Cohort is a 12-hour self-paced,  guided learning experience that will take place over a 6-week period.  This interactive, engaging, online course utilizes and teaches the best practices for designing blended professional learning which includes synchronous and asynchronous activities. Join us for a virtual learning experience that takes you through the learn-apply-refine process with other education leaders who share your same goal - to create meaningful online learning experiences.

 

This course is tied to your real work, so please come with an actual online course in mind that you want to create or redesign. 

Participants will:

  • Learn guidelines relating to learning objectives, learning designs, and learning facilitation in order to ensure a high-quality learning design and environment.

  • Explore strategies for creating an inextricable link between learning objectives and course design.

  • Discover a design process that ensures that your learning outcomes are prioritized and successfully communicated.

  • Understand and implement the best practices in online course facilitation.

  • Design a blended or fully online Professional Learning experience that addresses a current professional learning need in your district. 

  • Experience a feedback process that aids in the development of your online course. 

  • Participate through the Teach:able platform, but the course is platform agnostic and will transfer to any learning management system.
