Learning To Learn Online for Youth
Transitioning to online learning can be a daunting task, especially as a younger learner.
To help with these challenges, Athabasca University’s Learning to Learn Online team has sponsored LTLO Express, a four-week course designed to help youth between the ages of 14-21 transition to online learning.
The course runs from Sept. 21, 2020 until Oct. 18, 2020 and is completely free, with free certificates of completion, sponsored by Athabasca University.
LTLO Express is an introduction to online learning that discusses what the experience of learning online is really like. The course also exposes learners to some of the technology they will use. Insight will be shared about the differences between in-person and online classes, and how to set learning goals for a digital classroom.
The course is led by Dr. Marti Cleveland-Innes, professor and chair in the Centre of Distance Education, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Athabasca University, and inspired by Dan Wilton a senior high school instructor in English and Media Arts in the BC Distance Education School system.
