Rural Routes Online 

Rural Routes has diversified our service delivery model to now include online learning opportunities through web-conferencing tools. Typically these online workshops are 2-2.5 hours long. In some cases more time is needed to address an ESL related subject, so the topic is divided into a series of progressive sessions. Rural Routes offers web-based PD workshops to ESL programs and providers to enrich and enhance our service delivery, and not as a way to replace our face-to-face delivery mode. The original Rural Routes PD workshops are adapted for an e-learning platform and pedagogy. Rural Routes also collaborates with strategic partners and stakeholders to offer online workshops.
