How to get the most out of your online course
Not published to students
We can help you get the most out of your online course, retreat or webinar.
It is our experience that online events can be just as powerful, collaborative, and transformative as the ones in our onsite programme.
To get the most out of this course we ask that you commit yourself to these basic principles:
- You are responsible for your own learning. Speak up if there's a problem;
- True learning comes when we leave our comfort zones. Stick with the course, even when it is difficult to do so;
- We are a group made up of diverse points of view and levels of experience. We all have something to teach and something to learn;
- Make a commitment to set aside at least one dedicated period of time each week to give the material your full attention;
- Approach the material, and other participants' responses, with a sense of curiosity rather than judgement;
- Aim to post at least one original comment in each week's forum and to respond to at least one comment from another participant;
- You might find it helpful to have a 'learning-buddy' with whom you can talk over the material you encounter. This doesn't necessarily have to be someone enrolled on this course;
- Take time getting to know the course pages and course structure. Be aware of what's coming up and know how to go back to previous material;
- Watch the video, 'Working together online', and consider the advice given.
