Course Description

Participants in this four-week, online course will learn how to craft onsite, outreach, and virtual programming that is meaningful for the current needs of the educational community. Employing a flipped classroom model, participants will engage with presentations, readings, videos, and discussion boards which will prepare them for meaningful virtual conversations with their peers and the facilitators in the workshop. By the end of the course participants will be able to recognize the basics of learning theory and educational program design for both in-person and virtual programming; will have identified ways to increase impact through reflecting on their current programming; and will integrate learning theory into educational program development for one of their current or future programs.

Outcomes

  • Participants will recognize the basics of learning theory and educational program design for both in-person and virtual programming
  • Participants will reflect on their current educational programming in order to identify creative ways to increase impact
  • Participants will integrate learning theory into education program development for one of their current or future programs
