As we know, questions about online teaching and learning abound.
How can teachers encourage greater interaction among students in online courses?
What constitutes effective feedback in online courses?
In what ways can teachers support a multitude of learning styles?
These topics—and others—will be covered in a seven week MOOC (massive open online course) starting Oct. 21. The course, designed for k-12 teachers, is offered by the not-for-profit Blended Schools Network.
According to the group’s website, course content will include:
- Online lessons to be completed during an assigned week
- Online collaboration activities during assigned weeks
- Online presentation and discussion sessions in both live and recorded formats
