This class is part of the Facilitating Online (2011) facilitated by Sara Stewart . The online course is designed to help people to access and interpret models, research, and develop professional expertise in online facilitation. Here is the course outline which includes course outcomes, assessments and a study schedule.
The speaker will be Dr. Nellie Deutsch who will talk about her experiences as an online facilitator and will also spend some time showing us how WiziQ works.
