Developing Online Teaching Competencies
by María Luisa Castanedo
With technology thrusted upon us as never before, three friends, teacher trainers, initially made a space to pin down the basic online teaching competencies we would need to put into practice and develop to face the 2020-2021 school year. We have continued to work on a more precise description of the indicators that make levels of competency evident, with the participation of teachers of all subjects in a public high-school in Estado de México. In this brief talk, we will share the different steps we have taken to devise eventual targeted interventions to help teachers develop their online teaching competency.
