Ontario Extend Fall 2021 Offering
This fall we are offering all six Extend modules as facilitated courses with optional synchronous and asynchronous check-ins delivered in the Brightspace Learning Management System. The modules are designed to support your decision-making for the appropriate use of digital education tools – a timely resource for the weeks ahead as you look to provide instructional continuity for your students and navigate the new normal.
Beginning September 20th and with continuous enrollment through to December 11th, our flexible approach to facilitated delivery offers Ontario’s post-secondary educator’s multiple opportunities during this 12-week period to engage with each one of the six program modules in a way that meets their busy schedules and is free of charge.
This means you can register at any time and participate in course components at your own pace and/or with your provincial colleagues in order to enhance your learning journey and motivate you to completion. These facilitation efforts are led by eCampusOntario Extend facilitators who are excited to guide you through the course content in a way that is flexible with no commitment. Extend is also available in French through a self-paced learning experience.
The flexible delivery schedule offers multiple opportunities to engage with the Extend program with no sign-up required to attend any of the facilitated sessions – you can mix and match as you please! Educators have the option of attending any of the following sessions:
- Daytime: 1-hour module Lunch & Learn’s on Tuesdays from 12-1pm
- After Hours: 3 after hours sessions per module on Mondays & Friday from 7-8pm
- Saturday Extenders: Extend “crash course” on Saturdays from 9am-12pm or 1pm – 4pm
In addition to these sessions, your facilitators will host open Extender hours every Wednesday from 7-8pm and engage with learners asynchronously through the discussion forums.
