Overview

Asynchronous Learning #1 Getting started with asynchronous learning
World events are turning teaching on its head and as a result educators, faced with a lack of physical classrooms, are looking at how they can reach their students by using some sort of online platform. From the coursebook specific sites through to places such as google classroom, through asynchronous methods, teachers are able to consolidate and extend coursework to ensure learning can still take place. In the first of two sessions, we’ll explore what using such sites can offer a teacher. We’ll look at things we need to consider to ensure that when you start students on them, they feel a similar sense of community to that of the face-to-face classroom as well as what things we need to consider when setting up online tasks.
