UVic’s Pre-Arrival Program is only one example of an online orientation program. Every institution with an online orientation has likely created their program with different goals, learning outcomes, structure, and learning activities. Across the country, some programs may be similar, while others will be drastically different. There are so many institutions and approaches to learn from!
Since most Canadian institutions have created their programs within their learning management system, and therefore behind an institutional log-in, it’s very difficult to share our work with colleagues. The only way to share is through Zoom meetings and screensharing, or through written descriptions and explanations. We have so much to share with each other on the topic of online orientation, and I’d love to help facilitate that sharing!
If you want to write a blog post about your online orientation program, I’d be happy to share it on Taking Orientation Online. Your blog post could include any or all of the following:
- Describe your program in detail
- Share the key lessons you learned
- Walk us through the process of creating your program
- Talk about an activity or two that you really like from your program
- Discuss where you see your program going in the future
- Share how your program helped your institution accomplish its goals
- Anything you can think of!
