George Brown College:
With nine out of 10 graduates hired within six months of graduation, Toronto’s George Brown College has established a reputation for equipping students with the skills, industry experience and credentials to pursue the careers of their choice. Our Distance Education courses provide you with personalized teacher support and feedback as you pursue an interest, a designation or a certificate in a wide range of fields including Architectural Studies, Business Administration, Health Services, and more.
While traditional training approaches work for many, effective online training requires a new teaching philosophy, which needs to:
- Use technology as much as possible
- Show students the big picture
- Package learning into bite size chunks or modules
- Use games and gaming principles (after all they've grown up on games)
- Be dynamic - use varied and blended methods (discussions, teams, case studies, projects, papers, texts, the internet...)
- Provide opportunities for creativity and allow for strategic thought
- Demonstrate expertise that earns respect ("just because you're the teacher doesn't mean I can't get a better answer on the internet")
- Provide continuous feedback (24/7 not 3 hours a week)
- Create time for debate (facilitate teamwork & discussion rather than spoonfeed)
- Define expectations clearly and
- Align individual goals with the success of the organization.
