Blended learning, fully online, asynchronous, reverse classroom, flipping…What do these terms mean? What is the best online learning approach for your school?

Are you investigating online learning at your independent school? As a busy administrator, it may be daunting to sort through mountains of information and media hype to find online learning resources that address the specific needs of your school.  Join your colleagues at Online Learning: Developing a Strategic Approach for Your School. During this two-week online course, developed by NAIS and the Online School for Girls, you will gain the tools, background information, and experience you need to begin strategic conversations about online learning at your school.  You will

  • learn from other independent school colleagues who have successfully launched online learning initiatives;
  • immerse yourself in the student online learning experience by using the tools your students use;
  • participate in guided discussions about online learning and financial sustainability, decision-making and strategic planning, and pedagogy and the learning environment; and
  • take away research and resources developed specifically for independent school administrators that you can put to use at your school.

Who Should Participate?

This course is designed for independent school administrators who are beginning to investigate online learning.  During the two-week online course, attendees can expect to commit 3- 4 hours each week. Space is limited to no more than three individuals per school.  Registration is limited to NAIS member schools.
