Intended Audience Individuals and institutions interested in taking a look at fully online learning with community supports; those interested in assessment tools that speak to the readiness for participation in fully online learning environments; those involved in the creation of supports required by institutions for students, faculty, institutional. Workshop Description This workshop will provide an overview of the theoretical underpinnings and description of the FOLC model and its component parts. Through small group activities, participants will examine and discuss propositional definitions for the FOLC components. Participants will complete the FOLCS online self-assessment instrument and discuss their experience with a focus on improving the FOLCS for global use. In addition, participants will examine the application of the FOLCS for use with their students as a component of determining readiness to moving into fully online learning environments. The workshop will conclude with an explanation of the global educational learning observatory (GELO) and its associated tool set will be shared and participants will be invited to join into this global research network. Participant Engagement Participants in small groups will discuss, propose definitions, experience the FOLCS and a variety of online tools associated with the GELO, and contribute to the evolution and refinement of theoretical descriptive and predictive models of contemporary online learning. Participant Outcomes Participants will examine and discuss: • what it means to be a fully online learner; • what does it mean to be working in community online in formal educational contexts; • ways to measure readiness; • collaborative research (GELO) approaches and tools to examine readiness, culture, competence (confidence and frequency of use of technology) and the impact of this in fully online learning environments.
