Practitioner pedagogy can be difficult to manage online. We are teaching professionals to practice without face to face contact. In some cases, technology is available to interact with our students, but it is not the only way of broadening their skills. Teaching family life education and human services using electronic learning formats must incorporate interaction with the student's community. Strategies for engaging students and making them competent professionals will be addressed. Objectives

By the end of the presentation attendees will: 1. outline at least three necessary components of a skills based online class. 2. evaluate and discuss barriers to online learning of skills. 3. describe three ways to incorporate practitioner skills into their online course.
