Webinar - Taking the “eek” out of participating in fully online communities: Exploring Readiness using the Fully Online Learning Community Model
As post-secondary institutions increasingly move into online learning, many students still haven’t had a fully online learning experience in formal education—let alone know what it takes to thrive in one. In response, Dr. Elizabeth Childs, Master of Arts in Learning and Technology program head, is co-developing an online tool that guides people through a series of questions that evaluate their social, collaborative, cognitive and technological skills.
“It helps you answer the question, ‘What is my readiness for participating in a fully online learning community right now?’” Childs says. “It also highlights aspects that you may not have previously considered, and helps you identify opportunities for growth.”
During the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to both preview and be part of the edit and revision process for the tool. We will explore models for online learning communities at Royal Roads University and beyond, including the Fully Online Learning Communities model, or FOLC.
We encourage you to register for the webinar even if you are unable to attend. Everyone who registers will receive a link to the webinar recording.
