[NEW] Instructional Design for Chat-based Learning 

Duration: 4 hours 

Format: Online via Zoom 

Recommended for: 
Educators and instructional designers who are looking to create an interactive and engaging learning experience via chat 

Teaching is not just about content; it’s about connection. To paraphrase the way that Nerantzi and Beckingham (2015) characterised the ongoing evolution of digital pedagogy, novel approaches are necessary for successful teaching and learning in the digital age. Firstly, we need to connect and communicate with students in innovative ways. As educators, we need to feel comfortable curating our curricula via new tools and platforms to meet our students where they are. We also need to leverage digital capabilities in service of our emerging digital pedagogy in ways that foster collaboration and creativity. 

Join us for this novel workshop on how you can effectively design chat-based learning for your students. This workshop will include a practical, hands-on session where you will build a chat-based learning course.
