First of all, thank you to all who attended this week’s webinar course on Foundations in Innovative Learning Methods and Models. For those who registered but had a conflict preventing them from attending, you missed a great learning event but, fear not, you will receive a link to the recording as well as a PDF version of the slides. In and of itself, the short course was packed full of information on types of innovative learning methods and agency examples and success stories, but in addition to all the information we prepared, many participants offered their ideas, comments, and burning questions on many of the topics we discussed. We were overwhelmed by the input we received from so many public service members who either had great ideas on how to do more with less or were unsure about how to capitalize on individual learner strengths in this era of constant cutbacks.
In an effort to not just talk at you but to collaborate with you, we have added several of the questions asked during Tuesday’s webinar that weren’t directly addressed due to time constraints to this community’s discussion board. We have provided our experts’ answers, but we encourage you to debate them further and bring up other questions to us and to each other. Think of it as another form of innovative learning for you: collaborative analysis through online forum.
For those who attended the webinar, what is your feedback? What did you take away from it or what do you wish you had gotten out of it but didn’t?
