This session will present a case study of our experience designing online training for supervisors at the University of Minnesota. Through a presentation and facilitated discussion, we will present our experience and highlight our main takeaways about how to create a course connected to their individual learning goals. Our goal is to share the lessons we have learned about effective online teaching, addressing audience needs, working with novice e-learners, and working with partners who have a lot of other things on their plate.
