Teaching in Synchronous Online Learning Environments (with a focus on Zoom)

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a significant shift to online (mostly synchronous) teaching methods. As we move from emergency teaching of the spring/summer 2020 to considering effective pedagogical principles in an online environment in the winter 2021, its important to contemplate and reflect on how best to teach in these environments. Join us for an interactive webinar on teaching in synchronous environments for small-moderate group sizes (2 - 30 learners), with a focus on Zoom.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: demonstrate interactive features of synchronous technologies (e.g. Zoom) in teaching; recite practical tips and learning considerations for online synchronous learning; contrast the advantages and disadvantages of synchronous online learning; and incorporate the learner perspective (or experience) in the design of synchronous online learning​
