Making the Most of Online Teaching
Since, most likely, this year we will have to blend online teaching strategies together with the ones we use when teaching in class, we ought to keep in mind that current technology allows us to adjust our teaching strategies and techniques so as to achieve our aims and objectives when being in front of the screen, almost as if we were in class. We can keep following the curriculum, developing all skills in an integrated way, we continue using textbooks, workbooks, grammar books or other auxiliaries as they all come in digital interactive format that can be opened with a mouse click.
This workshop invites you to experience online teaching techniques and activities you may apply on your students so as to increase interaction in online classes. We will do pair work and group work and we will go through activities for primary, secondary and high school students that will show you how to unlock the knowledge of online teaching & learning, which is simply there, in your hands, in your brilliant minds.
You will be provided a zoom link to join the online workshop the day before the workshop takes place.
All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance issued by Uniscan Grup Educational.
