Activities for online teaching
Presenter: Pete Sharma
Saturday, May 23, 2020
14.00 - 16.15 CET

Webinar on Zoom hosted by MELTA

The crisis we are living through has led to unprecedented changes, not least for teachers, schools, universities and institutions forced to swiftly change to teaching online, at least temporarily. The steep learning curve involved can be disorienting.
This webinar aims to provide practical ideas for language teachers on how to deliver online activities. It includes:
- A focus on the similarities and differences between classroom and online delivery in terms of pedagogy and practicalities

  - Hands-on experience using ZOOM as a platform

  - Hands-on experience of online language learning activities covering grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and selected language and business skills
  - Ideas for asynchronous online delivery
  - Tips for good practice

There will be time for attendees to ask questions. Participants will leave with ideas on how to plan for the future. They will finish the workshop with a clear understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to teach synchronously online.
