The GLP team is spread across the country with no physical office – we spend a lot of time planning, leading, and facilitating events online. We invite you to consider some practical tips from our collective experience with a learning-centered approach that can facilitate your work, strengthen team connections, and serve the goals you set out to achieve.
If you are not sure where to start, begin with this reflection from GLP Founder Jane Vella, An Observation Guide for Systems Change
Quick Guide to Online Learning Design
If you’ve been thrown unexpectedly into designing an online learning event, our Quick Guide is for you. This is an entirely self-paced online course that you can access on demand in Ruzuku. The Guide actively walks you through all the steps you need to create a powerful online learning experience or translate in-person learning to an online or blended experience.
The Guide lays out a streamlined and accessible process that you can use each time you design. By the end, you’ll have a complete draft design.
When you buy the Guide, you also get one free design review (by email or phone) by a GLP Partner.
DR. JANE VELLA / Founder / GLP, INC.
“An amazing summary of Dialogue Education in an eminently usable form at an exceptional moment in global history. We know that QUICK has two meanings: fast, and ALIVE. I trust this virtual guide will travel the globe to bring online programs ALIVE with learning.”
