About the course

Explore best practices of online communication and instruction.  This program offers a wide range of resources to assist teachers in fostering social and emotional relational engagement with their students.  In a modified coaching format and asynchronous learning opportunities, teachers will be able to refashion elements of their curricular structure, selecting and implementing a range of learning opportunities and online tools to improve student engagement and teacher-student communication.  An initial cohort meeting and a course debrief with colleagues open the door to an exchange of ideas, an opportunity to brainstorm ways to refine strategies, and receive and provide support and encouragement.   


Here is what administrators are saying about the AVLI Versatile Classroom experience:


"The Versatile Classroom was able to challenge [teachers from every academic discipline] and all reported growth in areas they set as goals. They learned concrete instructional design practices and enjoyed time with mentors and colleagues to refine their skills.  They were exposed to different theories, practices, and modalities that prepared them well for the hybrid classroom experience….  All within our faith-based lens.  It is rare to see a blend of personal, professional, and spiritual growth – but that is what our faculty found in the Versatile Classroom experience.
