Registration is now closed. For more information contact learn@bcnpha.ca

The FLO course is a research-based, experiential online learning course. Through reading, discussing and doing, participants will learn concepts, principles and strategies that ensure online facilitating is fun and effective. FLO builds on the central principles of expert face-to-face facilitation.

FLO will help you build the skills needed to confidently and effectively facilitate online learning.

Royal Roads University developed the FLO curriculum as an open educational resource (OER) based on the Instructional Skills Workshop. In addition to Royal Roads University, BC Campus – SCoPE has implemented FLO training, providing it to faculty and staff from post-secondary institutions across the province.

The version of FLO offered by BCNPHA builds on this solid foundation of well researched and time-tested curriculum to provide online facilitation training crafted specifically for our courses and our members.
