Connect with the VLS Community of Practice in eCampusOntario’s webinar series 

Have you been curious about how others will be contributing to the Virtual Learning Strategy (VLS)? What they are creating? How they are approaching the work? Now is your chance to come together with the community, meet colleagues, collaborate, share new ideas and learn from each other. 

In keeping with VLS principles of being collaborative, learner-driven, and digital by design, eCampusOntario is hosting a webinar series between July and September, open to everyone. The series is in response to input from VLS project leads that an interactive forum would be a fitting way to connect with peers across the sector to learn more about what others are creating, and how.

Webinar speakers will bring specialized expertise in areas that will be helpful to you as you develop your project. They will facilitate discussions on key topics such as accessibility, equity, diversity and inclusion, humanizing learning, building community, creation platform and more.

The Liberated Learner Micro-Credential aims to create a set of modules that will enhance a learner’s ability to get their learning done, regardless of the learning environment that they face. As such, we have invited student co-designers in to every level of development of the project, especially as subject matter experts. We recently held a design sprint, led by our student co-designers, in which approximately 80 students crafted 110+ stories about the “wicked problems” that they have faced in their learning journeys. These stories will now serve to inform the content of the modules to be built. Join us for a panel discussion with the student co-designers as we discuss the process and the products of our design sprint.
