Unlike face-to-face courses, online courses do not provide the same opportunities for back-and-forth clarifications and corrections of instructions to students. For this reason, in mediated courses that rely on systems such VIULearn and Zoom, students will need a framework for greater self-direction. This means that the purposes of any given activity need to be clear, and the paths you lay out for students needs to be defined more explicitly than was needed in a face-to-face course.What does that path look like? We will look at some examples and begin the process of developing your own “map” for guiding students through the journey you have envisioned for them, based on course learning outcomes.Date: Thursday, November 12, 9:30 - 10:45 amRegistration: https://inviu.viu.ca/TinyUrl.cfm?ID=370Questions: ciel@viu.ca | Centre for Innovation and Excellence in LearningfalseaYqCFcQpUzxLBYhTummH26494
