In February 2021, the Canadian eLearning Network (CANeLearn) began engaging educators across Canada in conversations about teaching in online learning environments[1]. The purpose of the CANeLearn study was to gain an understanding of the lived experiences of online educators and those who came to online education during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study invited classroom teachers and online teachers from established online programs and schools to conversations about how they designed, structured, and facilitated successful practices in online learning environments.

Through the use of Design Thinking and a Participatory Approach, K-12 educators were engaged in a series of survey and Design Conversations that touched on a variety of topics from resources and technology to professional learning specific to teaching online. Eight Design Principles were identified from the survey and validated through a series of Design Conversations with BC educators. Participants in the CANeLearn study expressed the desire for the principles to be shared widely and used to move practice forward. They believed the principles would help enhance the reputation of online learning and should be used to continue discussions about online learning practice amongst their colleagues.

Join Susan for a review of the study and plans for its rollout across the country.
