How long is the program?
The program is 2 months long. The independent learning can be accessed on this platform from the first day of the first month until the last day of the second month.
What are the different ways I'll learn?
These are the different ways you'll learn: independent learning with participant materials, on-the-job application and getting 'real work' done, weekly virtual group sessions, and practice partners.
What if I can't attend a virtual session?
All of the virtual sessions are recorded so you can watch any that you miss.
What do you mean, I'll get 'real work' done?
This is a practical program where you'll be asked to do real work. You'll identify a course you need to design for virtual delivery. Then you'll work on that course to apply what you are learning. At the end of the program you'll have a virtual course you can deliver with confidence.
What are Practice Partners?
Practice Partners provide you with the opportunity to practice facilitating what you've designed and get feedback from other participants. In the second month, I will provide you with your group and ask you to meet outside of the virtual sessions to practice facilitating a portion of the course you're working on.
What is the expected workload?
There are between 2 to 4 hours per week of structured learning (e.g., independent learning through this platform and the weekly virtual sessions). In addition, you will apply what you learn to your job to get 'real work' done. The time is in addition to the structured learning, but it's work you would already need to do. This program provides you with a structure and timeline for completing it.
What if I can't complete all the self-study in the time allowed?
If you would like ongoing access to the self-study materials after the program has finished, you can purchase a month-by-month subscription for $500 per month.
What if I want to send my team? Do you have group pricing?
Yes, I'd be happy to work with your team. They will benefit by learning the same concepts at the same time. You will benefit by having your team all follow the same process. I would be happy to talk about discounted pricing with you.
What's the award this program has received?
This program was originally called Redesign for Online. In 2021, it was recognized with a learning design award from the Institute for Performance and Learning in Canada.
What happens if my professional development allowance is less than the program cost?
I'd love for you to still join the program. Bring a friend and you can each come for $1000. Use the coupon code: bogo_dda2024
