Over 6,000 teachers took part in a recent National Geographic Learning survey looking into English language teaching online. When asked about key challenges, many teachers mentioned the problem of maintaining motivation levels early on in a course, fully exploiting synchronous and asynchronous tools such as Zoom and Moodle, and designing engaging interactive activities.
In this session, we’ll explore these issues and I’ll emphasise the need to design courses and lessons which make the students’ early experiences of online learning more positive and therefore more motivating. I’ll suggest some practical ways to fully exploit the online tools available to us for greater engagement. And finally, we’ll try out some online interactive activities which focus on personalization of the course material.
