RCHS Best Practices in e-Learning
Ended Jun 4, 2021
Full course description
For RCHS STAFF ONLY - E-Learning is a broad term that covers a variety of instructional delivery models, including hybrid/blended, flipped, and full remote online instruction. Whatever the delivery model, though, there are some common pedagogical "best practices" that will help you improve the learning experience for everyone. This course will explore how these best practices lead to increased student engagement and learning.
