In this webinar, we’ll look at a communication strategy along with methods to ensure your message reaches your students – to act upon.
Blended courses can disrupt the process of student understanding and clarification of activities and assessments for completion. A well developed and concise communication strategy can help to provide clarity for student expectations, help keep students anchored to the course and engage learners through simple activities both pre-and post possible face to face or online sessions
- Draft a simple yet comprehensive bi-weekly communication to all students
- Establish the content of communication – resources, feedback, task reminders, micro learning activities, problems.
- Select a communication tool that best suits your learner’s characteristics and digital savvy
- Establish and manage QnA forums for assessment or group work.
