Teaching in hybrid and virtual learning environments can be challenging when students are learning from home at their own pace. Asynchronous learning relies on students having skills of autonomy and self-awareness. Structuring and organizing asynchronous learning in a way that supports, motivates, and engages learners will help in transferring this ownership over to students. A learning pathway is a student-centered instructional strategy that provides this type of organization and structure to support students of any grade level in engaging with content on their own timing.
This type of learning model provides a great opportunity to personalize learning for students. It can be challenging for teachers to create self-paced learning opportunities for students to do “on their own”, but when designed well this leads to increased student growth and engagement. In this Virtual Workshop, participants will:
This workshop is intended to support teachers or coaches who want to engage students in hybrid or virtual learning environments by implementing self-paced, asynchronous learning pathways.
Participants will build understanding about the framework of asynchronous learning pathways and how to structure and create self-paced experiences for students in hybrid and virtual learning environments.
