|Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of the challenge?! The connections & sharing that have been happening during the last 4 days have been powerful…we are honored to have you as part of this community!
Yesterday you got a taste of what if feels like to add value to your PLN through mutual sharing. Today, we’re opening ourselves up in order to create a more tight-knit community.
“In September 2010, the Department of Education (US) issued a detailed report that conducted a meta-analysis of 45 published studies that compare online and face-to-face learning. This analysis demonstrated that online learning methods are, on average, at least as effective as face-to-face learning. We believe that not only can online learning be as effective as face-to-face learning, but built on the foundations of theories that lend themselves to online learning, we can create a powerful learning experience for participants who can’t be face-to-face. This community approach to learning that the COETAIL Program is based on continues to show positive results in both online learning and face-to-face courses.”
Sometimes online learning can feel lonely. However COETAIL’s goal is to capitalize on the efficacy of online learning while creating a built-in community of support. How was COETAIL’s online learning community different than other experiences you’ve had? One COETAILer said: “Being connected to others digitally is an amazing way to learn and share. The content was great but the sharing and connections were fantastic.” We’re in this together.
