- Nova Scotia Virtual School: A Collaborative Model for Online Learning – Sarah Hainsworth
- Join this session to learn how Nova Scotia has developed unique collaborative models that provide all students in the province with access to full course complements. Learn how classroom and online teachers work together in creating a cohesive and flexible learning pathway for students in the province. Bring your ideas to the discussion about how you can implement some of these unique approaches in your own school or program.

- Blueprinting your Course – Lise Pethyridge, ADLC
- The key to a great course is a great design. At the Alberta Distance Leaning Centre, we have over time developed processes to help teachers build better courses. The blueprint, an involved process around defining outcomes, an assessment plan and a student learning path as a collaborative effort is the first step. Join me as I outline this process and hopefully give you tools to apply to your own course design.
