Online Learning Excellence (OLE) Training

If you are working with today’s youth in universities around the world, you understand the importance of incorporating online tools in your pedagogy. The Online Learning Excellence (OLE) Initiative is designed to bring online education’s early adopters to you for a crash course in online learning.

Learn firsthand, educator-to-educator, how to identify and tailor the best possible learning tools and exercises for specific online learning objectives. Presenters will share best practice from real courses and show you how to make online experiential learning more than just a collection of activities.

Program Outputs

1. New Online Tools to Use in the Classroom
2. Outline for a New Online or Hybrid Course
