An Online Training Course to Learn How to Teach Online | Former en ligne pour apprendre à former en ligne
This case study deals with the implementation of ongoing training, offered wholly through distance and online learning, and conducted within the framework of an inter-university partnership linking two European countries. The case story relates the experience of several instructional designers (called Academic Advisors in this part of French-speaking Europe) who were in charge of designing, developing, and implementing an online course as well as conducting follow-up assessment on the skills acquired. The project occurred over a period of two years, from the initial course design during the first year to its implementation during the second year. During the design phase, a number of issues arose with regard to the didactic method used, institutional isomorphism, and the digital platforms operating in the two universities. Hindrances and facilitating factors encountered in the second year, during the trainees’ tutorship and guidance, are also analysed.
