Courses

Creating Learning Environments in a Digital Space 

Instructor: Keisha Valdez

Recent quick moves to online or remote instruction has forced us all to think differently about what it means to create a classroom space and the approaches we as educators take to support student learning. With the online or remote context in mind, this fully online course is designed to get participants to think holistically about the learning environment they wish to create,  explore the social and digital influences on the LE and to become more intentional about designing learning experiences that reflect 21st-century values and priorities of learning and teaching.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be better prepared to:

  • structure and design their virtual learning spaces to reflect 21-century skills development,
  • translate the values of the face to face traditional classroom to the online learning context,
  • develop lesson plans that appropriately use technology for learning remotely, 
  • apply best practices in online/remote teaching.
