First, we will  examine our own definitions of learning pathways. Then we will consider different key aspects needed for learning pathways and finally we will complete a learning pathway about alternative assessment.

This course introduces and examines how to integrate formal and informal learning into our classrooms. The emphasis is on Learning Pathways - and how we as facilitators can encourage students to become self directed learners by considering: competency based learning, formal and informal learning, learning design, alternative assessment and digital storytelling in our learning environments.
