Facilitating Learning Online – Synchronous

  • Length: three weeks - March 27 to April 16

  • Mode: online – asynchronous with scheduled synchronous sessions

  • Pre-requisite: none

  • Time commitment: Participants should expect to spend 6-8 hours for course activities during each of the three weeks. Those with no prior online teaching and learning experience can expect to invest more time. Continuous, active participation is necessary to make this course successful for everyone.

Workshop Description

Facilitating Learning Online – Synchronous is a three-week course which introduces participants to best practice strategies to plan for, facilitate and follow up after synchronous online learning events. It will help you enhance skills you need to confidently and effectively facilitate synchronous online learning. It is designed to provide you with opportunities to see and learn from examples of synchronous online facilitation and, if desired, practice synchronous online facilitation skills in a safe environment.

After the workshop begins, you will choose to engage with this course via one of two different “tracks”:

Track 1 – Reviewing Participants

Reviewing Participants are expected to:

  • Be an active participant in the course throughout its duration.

  • Attend at least two of the three planned synchronous sessions hosted by course facilitators (Mar. 28 and Apr. 4 at 4 p.m. PST, and Apr. 13 at noon PST).

  • Give feedback to Practicing Facilitators as they prepare for their facilitation.

  • Attend at least two synchronous online sessions of Practicing Facilitators and give feedback to them (dates/times to be determined).

Track 2 – Practicing Facilitators

Practicing Facilitators are expected to:

  • Be an active participant in the course throughout its duration.

  • Attend at least two of the three planned synchronous sessions hosted by course facilitators (Mar. 28 and Apr. 4 at 4pm PST, and Apr. 13 at noon PST).

  • Plan and facilitate a synchronous online session near the end of the course, either alone or in a pair (dates/times to be determined).

  • Ask for feedback from Reviewing Participants and course facilitators both as you plan your facilitated session and after your session, and reflect on that feedback.
