Nurturing Professional Development Ecosystems

2,331 views

Published on

Online teaching transcends the use of a singular tool and emerges as an ecosystem of multiple touch points for learning. A professional development ecosystem utilizes blogs, wikis, web-conferencing, and course management tools. Balanced ecosystems foster experiential learning for educators and model how educators can teach across networks and channels of communication. Find out about the architecture and assessment/evaluation of this type of professional learning and engage in an interactive conversation about balancing your own learning ecosystem.
