Workshop description

This meeting provides a forum to talk with other online teachers to discuss strategies and approaches to orienting students to become successful online learners.

Come and talk among your peers about current research on best practices for preparing students to be successful online learners. Materials and relevant Web sites will be shared and reviewed.
