Getting Started with Online Teaching and What You Need to KNOW
As an increasing numbers of schools, universities, and workplaces are adapting to online delivery, you will also need to adapt your teaching/training. It is not about providing content, but rather, adopting strategies to effectively teach in an online diverse environment. It requires you to pivot and redesign your courses to fit an online medium with learning strategies for students. Teaching online requires both a mind shift as well as a physical shift. With the growth of online learning, Educators and Trainers need to become comfortable and confident in an online classroom environment. Most importantly, it is about enjoying your teaching and training to get the best outcomes.
The traditional classroom experience of being physically present is no longer the only learning option. Online learning has been on the rise in recent years due to COVID, the rise of the internet, accessibility, and new technologies. Students, and especially virtual students, are multi-tasking between coursework, work commitments, and personal responsibilities.
The session content you present in a classroom may not translate to online delivery. Your online teaching/training will require course redesign and re-thinking how you present content — both coursework and activities. It takes time to create efficient session plans and a running sheet to map out each session that you present online.
This course is designed for educators, teachers, lecturers, and trainers who need to adapt face to-face to online teaching and increase their facilitation/training repertoire.
