OCWTP Needs Trainers to Take Pilot Online Course

The OCWTP is piloting an online course designed for trainers and needs trainers willing to take the course and provide valuable feedback. 

Course: It's Still Training: Best-Practice Facilitation of Distance Learning

Best practice facilitation of distance learning courses requires trainers to use all of the skills used in a traditional classroom, but often differently. In addition, distance learning requires the use of new - often feared skills - such as demonstrating technical competence. This self-directed online course will help you:

  • Engage participants in distance learning events
  • Manage your time when facilitating distance learning
  • Make maximum use of voice and writing skills to enhance learning
  • Develop training designs that maximize available resources for your virtual training

Credit: Pilot will help determine average time to complete the course. We anticipate we will be able to offer up to 1.0 OCWTP credit for each. At this time, we are not offering SW Licensure credit.



When: You will be directed to take the course sometime between May 28th and June 13th.

How: Once registered we will email you an online link that will take you directly to the course. You will be able to start and stop at your convenience. Once completed, you will be asked to complete an online survey to give us feedback about the course.
