Teaching Online – How to Smoothly Adapt to a Remote Teaching Environment
by Gregg Sotiropoulos
In the past months, teachers have been required to take their teaching online. Unfortunately, most teachers were unprepared and struggled to teach online and motivate their students at the same time. In this webinar, we will go over the basic principles of teaching online and tackle the common issues and challenges that arise in an online teaching/learning environment. We will explore basic online tools and applications essential to a virtual classroom and discuss techniques to make the teaching process smoother for teachers and more effective for students. At the end of this webinar, teachers will feel more confident teaching remotely and be able to adapt their lessons to suit the needs of a virtual classroom.
