“The times they are a-changin’” sang Bob Dylan back in 1964. And just as they were changing back then, we now find them changing again with the teaching landscape hastily being moved online. So welcome to the brave new world of online teaching, where many teachers find themselves in unchartered territory. But fear not: not only are you are not alone, but a lot of what you already do is transferable to the online classroom. It’s not so much reinventing the wheel, as changing the spokes.
In the second part of this webinar series, teacher trainer Alex Warren will show how you can utilize the tools available in the virtual Zoom classroom to teach a unit of a digital coursebook. This will include a top ten tips for online teaching. We’ll then finish by exploring how you can support students outside of the virtual classroom with additional synchronous course content.
