Zoom: All you ever wanted to know but were too shy to ask – a basic course in the use of Zoom
31. October 2020 @ 14:30 - 16:00
This workshop is geared towards English language teachers who have little or almost no knowledge of using Zoom, either as a participant or as a trainer. If you already use Zoom extensively, and know your way around Zoom, this workshop is not for you.
We will look at the basics of setting up a Zoom meeting, sending invitations and managing participants. You will also be introduced to other functions such as the waiting room, the break-out rooms and polls. Break-out rooms and polls are great for teaching as you can get your learners into smaller groups and assign them work, while polls enable you to get feedback from your audience. You will also be introduced to other ways of getting and providing feedback. You will have the opportunity to practice working with the in-built whiteboard, share your screen and get to know how the comment function works. Last but not least, we will look at and discuss some etiquette such as muting, use of video, recording and much more.
This workshop is interactive and everyone is encouraged to ask questions, test out functions and learn together.
About the presenter
Khanh-duc Kuttig was thrown into a very challenging teaching situation when her university went online in April this year. From never having heard of Zoom, she zoomed
her way through 15 weeks of the summer semester, bumbling at first but with much encouragement and enthusiasm from her students, she taught 8 classes a week entirely online. She has taken numerous courses in online teaching and learning and believes that once you know the basics of any programme, software or platform, it can be a valuable teaching tool. Khanh-duc is also the events co-ordinator for ELTA-Rhine and has been shortlisted for TESOL’s Teacher of the Year (2021) award.
Once you have registered, you will receive the Zoom link for the workshop. DO NOT LOSE THIS!
