Program Description:

Innovation in teaching is sometimes easier said than done. It takes a certain amount of risk-taking, often with extensive effort and no guarantee of success. This session will showcase an innovative approach using personalized and project-based instructional methods in an online course designed to instruct teachers in online teaching methods. Learn about the challenges and rewards of this approach and witness the results as teachers (as learners) share their experiences and their final projects.
