This session is free to TLT Group Individual Members. ($75 to others)We have done a session on roles such as VOC. In this session the plan is to talk of other roles such as that of a scribe, maybe even the designated learner. There could be a designated questioner, naysayer, optimist, etc. What else have people used or what else could be done.
This is especially relevant to our MOOC creation and to our Silver Cloudians who we hope will take some of these roles as we proceed.
