Online Facilitation and Designing for Engagement – UoN online course in April

January 29th, 2018 at 10:01

Online Facilitation and Designing for Engagement is a short online course that aims to provide those teaching or planning to teach an online or blended course  with ideas, techniques and skills to design and facilitate engaging activities for learning online. It was well-received by staff in 2017 and we are running it again in 2018

In this course – which takes place completely within Moodle – you’ll learn how to design engaging online activities that motivate students and promote learning in completely online/distance courses or as part of a blended course. It has a little theory but is mostly a very practical course, during which you will practice the essential skills of online facilitation: how to initiate and keep the discussion going with a minimum of intervention.

This entirely online course will take about 6-7 hours spread (reasonably evenly) over two weeks. You will be expected to engage in online activities which develop and build practical skills.  It’s suitable for those teaching courses within or outside the University including blended on-campus courses, online courses, NOOCs and MOOCs. There will be an emphasis on using Moodle but the skills are transferable.

Starts Wednesday 11th April until Tuesday 24th April 2018.
