Event Series Event Series (See All)

April 30 @ 7:00 pm 10:00 pm

This course is a practical exploration of techniques, systems, challenges, and benefits associated with distance education for adult educators in the North. It focuses on preparing teachers to facilitate distance learning based on their prior knowledge of adult learning, communication theory, and technology. Students will explore the use of relevant technology and appropriate instructional design in distance education. In addition, participants will investigate ways to establish a community of learning in an online course. Students will make use of Aurora College software platforms to learn how to create and deliver a distance learning course, in the context of the contemporary environment. Specifically, consideration will be given to how we can enhance connectivity and better simulate in-person learning using technology in a social distancing environment. The course uses Moodle, Teams, Zoom, and may include other platforms.
