Where: Online Cost: Free

Please join us to connect with and learn from Ontario CLRI educators and peers in your community of practice on the topic of improving learner engagement. In this interactive virtual mini workshop we will use experiential learning approaches and techniques to make frontline education relevant and supportive for all care team members. In the Key to Learner Engagement Part One, we heard you ask for the chance to explore and develop your skills in ‘just in time’ learning, interactive online facilitation, and proactive coaching and reinforcement of applying learning in practice.

Some of the ways we will exchange knowledge and experience among ourselves during the workshop will include live polls, break-out room discussions and online chatting.

Exhale, grab your lunch, and get comfortable. We look forward to learning with you!
