Translating Face-to-Face Family Life Education Programs into Virtual Settings
The COVID-19 pandemic brought the challenges of online education into headline news and everyday conversations. This included numerous stories on the obstacles faced by educators and students to successfully transfer face-to-face programs to a virtual setting. With the necessity of online educational experiences, it is important that Family Life Educators are also able to overcome these obstacles, meet the increasing demand, and provide high-quality learning experiences in a virtual setting.
Join two Family Life Educators as they walk through their process of translating face-to-face parenting education curricula into virtual settings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The presenters will share their experiences, offer tips and advice on important factors to consider when building an online program, and discuss the importance of intentionally integrating activities that help to build a sense of community in an online learning platform/environment.
Participants that attend this webinar will learn how to thoughtfully transition face-to-face content to online learning environments and build community/connection in live online learning environments. Participants will also learn about the importance of creating a sense of community in virtual experiences and explore ways to do this in their own online experiences.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Overcome common challenges when teaching online;
- Transition face-to-face Family Life Education content to online learning environments; and
- Build community/connection in virtual learning environments.
Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
