As we evolve to online learning and teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought to share some insights and tips on Online Teaching practices that can assist our educational teams use technology to do their job they best way they can!
Here are seven amazing tips:
Make It a Group Effort - Get everyone involved
Focus on 'Active' Learning - The course should mix spurts of discussions, collaboration, video and audio clips, and hands-on exercises with text and possibly brief video lectures
'Chunk' the Lessons - Present information in 10-minute “chunks” rather than long periods and vary the content
If you can, Keep Group Sizes Small
Be Present- No matter where teaching and learning take place, the importance of the faculty member being there and being mentally present with the students is the most important thing you can do
Parse Your Time - Be there as much as you are in a regular classroom, that doesn’t mean be there 24/7 because class is online now.
Embrace Multi-media Assignments - Face it, in today's worlds a lot of students express themselves better that way
