Taking your first steps into teaching live online. With the world on the verge of a global pandemic and many countries closing public institutions, educationalists are suddenly finding themselves without a physical classroom to teach in. As a result many teachers are looking at how to take their teaching online and wondering what’s the best way to do it and what equipment they may need. In the first of two webinars aimed at those of you forced to take your first steps into the online teaching environment, we’ll explore teaching live online, that is when you and your students meet online in real time for a lesson. It gives you tips on what to look for in your choice of software and discusses what equipment you need to get. Along the way we’ll share some tips for successful lessons so that by the end you’ll feel more confident entering the online synchronous teaching world.
