With remote learning, many of the tools we have used in the past (visual aids, small group instruction, audio cues, etc.) seem difficult or impossible to implement, and we can be left feeling we could have given our students more. However, your well crafted lessons and the routines and rituals that make you successful teachers CAN be adapted to the remote learning model.
This course help you to build proficiency and mastery in using computer programs and teaching strategies tailored to the remote teaching model. It will cover advanced streaming features, recording and editing videos, and professional-level broadcasting software, as well as effective strategies used to implement them.
In each session, we will introduce a new strategy, with hands-on practice implementing them, from the perspective of both instructor and student. We will guide you through the various methods and programs we use, so a teacher can feel confident with the knowledge of how to manage their students and present their online lessons effectively, in a way that best suits their students’ needs and their teaching style.
We will guide teachers through the strategies and programs which allow you to feel like the conductor of your lesson, instead of being along for the ride. During any given day, you are competing for your students’ attention with video feeds from audio/visual experts, a.k.a. your students’ favorite youtuber or streamer.
A wise man once said, “If you can’t beat em, join em.” Learn how to personalize your online classroom, and adapt your favorite teaching strategies. Teach with confidence again, and be ready to transition easily between in-person and remote models, so we can make this year a successful one, regardless of your circumstance.
