ocTEL Week 7 Webinar

May 27, 2013

Join our weekly webinar at 17.00 on Wednesday 29 May, via Blackboard Collaborate 11.

You can access the Week 7 webinar via this link.

This week’s webinar

PLEASE NOTE this week’s webinar is at 17:00pm rather than the usual 12.30pm.

Have you ever felt like you were planning a dinner party when what you really wanted was a picnic? We have lots of options about how we design learning to engage and facilitate peer to peer learning. But sometimes it is easy to get stuck with “what we’ve always done.” Join Nancy White as we explore our repertoire of possibility for groups and learning. With Nancy, we’ll practice some of the real time webinar facilitation techniques that tutors can use to enable a supportive, collaborative and / or co-operative environment.
