Structuring asynchronous learning experiences for students takes planning, organization, and careful choices. In this course, we will explore how teachers can maximize the power of student voice and choice while designing activities that will keep students engaged throughout the learning process.
This 10-hour course introduces a variety of ideas and strategies that can be used in the online classroom. From video creation strategies to the development of learning journeys and environments, teachers will explore a multitude of ideas that can be combined to create a successful structure for self-paced learning. Teachers will also reflect on how to provide voice and choice for students while still meeting curricular learning objectives.
● Participants will explore the idea of synchronous vs asynchronous instruction and will evaluate which type of instruction is appropriate at different times.
● Participants will be introduced to the idea of student voice and choice and will explore how allowing students to help set the pace for instruction – as well as giving them supports for independent learning and work can help build autonomy and student agency.

Director at International School of Myanmar
“The International School of Myanmar began the year online. Finding effective remote teaching strategies was a professional development need that our teaching staff desired and requested to assist them with delivering effective learning to our students online. Tom Driscoll tailored his professional development program to fit the needs of our school, utilized in-house expertise from our staff, and built upon our current program and resources to provide us with practical, efficient, and effective approaches in delivering Project-Based Learning remotely. His training is proving to be not only useful and needed while conducting online learning but will continue to further our program as we move to hybrid and face to face to learning.”
