Online Education: Blended, Remote, and Hybrid Learning

Table of Contents

Description

Online teaching can be a terrifying concept, especially for someone with little to no experience. However, recent years have demonstrated that in this matter, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages, as online education has proven to be less time-consuming, besides helping students become more autonomous and acquire important organization and time-management skills.

This course aims to assist teachers in coping with “the new normal” in teaching and learning by the means of Online Education, in order to support face-to-face teaching.

Participants will be introduced to blended and remote teaching and learning. They will discover various ICT tools for diverse purposes, gain confidence in using them, and learn how to choose the most suitable ones to utilize in their classes.

Moreover, the course will actively engage the participants with effective ice-breakers, group activities, and reflection sessions. Finally, it will support the teachers in focusing on how to help students learn at their own pace, have more fun at school, and develop autonomous learning skills.

By the end of the course, participants will be more comfortable getting benefits from the blended learning approach, and from educational technologies in their classrooms. They will also recognize many digital tools and easily select the ones that are more convenient for their students’ profiles.
