Mastering your Online Facilitation Skills in Team-Based Learning

So, you are ready to facilitate a team-based learning class.  You have your content mastered, your materials developed, and your audience confirmed.

And then you discover you can reach more participants--if you offered your course live in an online environment.  But you don’t feel ready or comfortable in presenting content and guiding student discussions in an online venue.

Online learning is different from face to face training.  But there are skills you can master in team-based learning and in online facilitation.

Come join us in an online environment. And master the basics of online facilitation.

Curious on what’s different in an online environment for team-based learning?  This workshop is for you.  Don’t miss out!
At the end of this online workshop, existing face-to-face TBL educators interested in TBL online as well as educators new to TBL should be able to:

  1. Identify the facilitation skills needed in an online learning environment

  2. Experience TBL as a student in an online synchronous modality

  3. List the steps that engage students seeking an online learning experience
