EVENT LEADER:

 

DESCRIPTION:

Blended learning. Hybrid learning. Mobile learning. Flipped classroom…

Experience all of these from the point of view of a student, while also seeing how instructors distribute resources; prompt online discussions for social learning; post, comment on, mark an assignment; and even assess understanding with a self-marking quiz. You'll learn 'best practice' teaching workflows for managing assignments, providing meaningful student feedback, and even reducing the likelihood of plagiarism.

If you want to make the most of a collaborative, eLearning platform that is easy for all users and simple to scale, this workshop is for you. But be prepared! This is a hands-on, minds-on activity-based workshop where you will learn by doing.
