Changing Online Facilitation Practices led by Nancy White

Nancy WhiteFacilitation of online learning is now into its fifth decade. The familiar web based online  learning environments have only existed since the mid 1990s. Since then we’ve seen radical changes in the technology, pedagogy and range of practices. The boundaries are shifting from closed classrooms, communities and password protected learning management systems to open and networked configurations. So where are we now? We’ll engage in conversation with four experienced facilitators of online learning to hear what they are thinking, and then engage everyone in reflecting on your practices.

Joining us are Maggy Beukes-Amiss, a veteran Namibian online facilitator and trainer of online and blended educators,  Nellie Deutsch, who is an English teacher and an expert in online facilitation, blended online learning, social networking and open education, Tony Carr, a South African trainer of online facilitators and online conference organiser, Gerrit Wissing, a highly experienced instructional designer and trainer of online facilitators, and moderator Nancy White, one of the early explorers of online facilitation and an expert in graphic facilitation.

Our ending… or really our beginning question will be “what’s next for us as online facilitators?” Have you thought about that? We hope you have and will join us!

From 9-13 July: Live Meetings Tues 10th July and Thurs 12 July at 3 pm (South African time/ GMT+2)
