Live instruction in Blackboard Collaborate and our Online Study Hall

Research and our student completion data tell us that students’ level of achievement and completion rates are dramatically improved when they participate weekly in live instructional sessions with their teachers. This keeps student focussed on “attending to their learning.” Registration in an online course requires that students work on their moodle courses which are available 24/7 to students. In addition students are required to attend a weekly check in with each subject teacher. In the live checkins teachers will provide focus for the week, instruction on key skills and respond to specific questions about course material. Students are asked to:

  • attend one of these blocks per week
  • communicate with their subject teacher if your timetable does not permit attendance at one of these sessions
  • continue to contact teachers and book appointments if you need additional support during teacher open office hour schedules posted on teacher e-teacher pages and in your courses.

 

Palliser Beyond Borders is truly all about choice. For our high school students, our online programs provide more choice than they might have in their schools alone. Beyond offering more diverse courses, there is also simply the choice for our students to work independently and on their own schedule, while still having the benefit of our excellent teachers.
