RRU’s three tiered model for Collaborate Moderator training models the geo-caching.com spirit of ‘Browse, Discover, Share’. Our faculty can browse self-help training materials and recorded Collaborate examples that we have organized into Level 1 training focused on what Collaborate looks like and how it works from a participant’s perspective. In Level 2 training, they discover how basic moderator functions work, again in a work-at-your-own-pace manner through activities we have organized to support their learning.
Level 3 training is synchronous, occurs in Collaborate and involves two sessions – the first asks participants to put what they have learned about moderator tools into practice and to both ask for and offer help in a Collaborate session where each participant performs moderator tasks within an authentic training session. So each person is discovering what they don’t know as well as sharing what they do know. In preparation for the second session in Level 3 training each participant designs and develops a 10-minute Collaborate session. During the synchronous session each participant loads their materials, takes charge of the group and facilitates the interactive session they have designed. Immediately following, participants and training facilitators offer feedback and suggestions for enhancements. Everyone sees new ideas and expands their repertoires of strategies for successful Collaborate sessions.
This ETUG session will share the training materials for all three levels (available on myRRU) as well as invite participants to participate in demonstrations of selected activities. Of course, we will want to hear what the audience is doing with regard to Collaborate training so there is sharing all around.
