Project Ungoverned? The Online Learning Landscape

New Ways of Teaching and Learning: An Online Professional Development Program (US) – Episode 2 Part 1

November 17, 2018

In Episode 2, we look at two examples of online education that showcase new ways of teaching and learning online, and reflect the diverse partnerships involved in creating and delivering online programs. We also ask: what type of good governance is needed to ensure consistent educational quality? Our guest for Episode 2 Part 1 is implementation specialist Emily Smith Goering, who tells us about their online professional development program for social workers, clinicians, and mental health providers working across the United States.
