Brian delivered a webinar to Consortium for Healthcare Education Online faculty on Strategies to improve your online teaching now! He provided faculty great insights into creating curriculum that engages online students. As one participant noted – it was an excellent resource to reference as individual faculty continue the development of online courses. I would recommend Brian to anyone seeking a presenter who is knowledgeable in the field of online learning and who can provide you with valuable strategies that you can use in your online courses whether you are new to this environment or a seasoned faculty.
