The Course Developer Workshop (Online)
What Is It?
The Course Developer Workshop Online will help you develop meaningful courses in less time. Dr. Paul Swan, your facilitator for the lessons, offers detailed feedback to you personally… one-on-one. The feedback can range from confirming feedback, when the assignments are right on the mark, to corrective feedback and even consulting where he shows what he would do in that situation. If you need more feedback, he will ask to schedule telephone calls to discuss the assignments to be sure that you are successful.
