How To Teach Online: Providing Continuity for Students
Discover practical ways to teach online and support your students
Are you a teacher looking to learn how to teach online successfully but are under time-constraints?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. This 3-week course will teach you how to adapt from face-to-face teaching to online teaching so that you and your students can get the most out of the school day.
Even for experienced practitioners, doing this under time pressures presents challenges. However, with the right knowledge, you can overcome the hurdles presented by teaching online and embrace its possibilities.
Creating a lesson plan
The course will begin with a discussion about the challenges of online teaching and advice on how to prepare your students for success outside of the classroom.
You’ll learn how to create effective lesson plans for online teaching and think about learning design considerations. We’ll provide useful resources and share some answers to popular questions about teaching online.
Engaging your students
Discover how to build a strong online community by connecting with others, and learn how to create engagement through interaction. You’ll find out how to balance online learning with offline, asynchronous learning.
We’ll be thinking about creating a structure for students during this difficult time and discussing how to build an effective student learning environment from home.
You’ll select and design different approaches aimed at engaging students, and you’ll hear from some students about their experiences with learning online.
Checking progress and providing feedback
