Online synchronous teaching

Watch Maria Guarnieri talk about online synchronous teaching.

In this contribution, Maria Guarnieri, Teaching Fellow in Italian at the University of Leicester, talks about her experiences of small group online synchronous teaching during the pandemic. As you watch, focus attention on what she says about:

  • the tools and activities she uses to trigger student engagement and interaction in online video conferencing platforms such as Teams and Zoom
  • her approach to the use of breakout rooms and whether or not students should have their cameras on or off during online synchronous classes
  • the role of the teacher and the strategies she uses to engage online learners in hybrid learning contexts.

We will discuss these issues in the next step.
