Instructional Design in Online Learning

I am excited to share my Profesional Learning Plan where I will help my fellow educators take a deeper dive into the benefits of blended learning and how to add those stratagies and opportunities for learner choice, voice and ownership into their courses through Canvas LMS. The video above will walk you through the background, goals, planning and implementation of my Professional Learning and the buttons below are additional links to the PL plan.

PL Implementation


I am thrilled at the progress I have made in my Professional Learning Course. The video will walk you through the modules with the focus on the outcomes, learner choice and opportunities for collaboration and reflection.
