Queen’s Online offers the potential for your students to participate in online activities outside the traditional classroom environment. This is an introductory online learning course which offers participants the opportunity to experience a range of brief online learning activities before they consider the skills required for online facilitation and then spend some time designing an online learning activity. 

This workshop begins with a face-to-face session on the afternoon of 16 January 2013, and continues for two weeks in Queen’s Online using online discussion, ending with a second face-to-face workshop on 30 January 2013. It is estimated the online activities will require a maximum commitment of 4-6 hours over the two week period.
