Online Shared Exploration and Implementation
August 26 – Oct 21, 2016
During the 8 week online portion learners will be actively integrating student-centred strategies into their classes and getting student feedback that is shared back with the community. This portion is built around challenges that are completed in conjunction with their teaching, helping learners advance their own skills, knowledge, and confidence with guidance from JIBC facilitators, coaches, and their own learning community. Learners will be actively contributing to open resource/s and in the process contributing to a larger open community.
