Aligning to Synchronous and Asynchronous Experiences
Time limit: 365 days
Full course description
In a distance learning classroom, it's important to balance synchronous meetings with asynchronous activities, which help supplement the learning that takes place in a live session and allow students to practice skills they're meant to master. Each learning experience should complement the other, and this training details best practices for aligning your course's synchronous and asynchronous activities. You can leverage the power of technology to support students' independent learning, embed scaffolded assignments to build upon skills students have acquired, and create a valuable learning experience for every student by appropriately balancing time spent with you and time spent on independent work or collaborative assignments. Finally, the training covers maintaining student motivation, which can feel fleeting in a distance learning environment but is critical for student retention and growth.
