Event description
This webinar will focus on how to ensure more effective teaching in an online environment at higher education level.

About this event

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic saw higher education teaching move online over-night. Our higher education institutions are now coming to the end of the 2nd semester of the 2020/21 Academic Year in which most/all has been delivered online. With a return to ‘normal’ in no way clear at this juncture, online teaching may fully remain for some time to come. Even if there is a move back to on campus teaching and learning it is likely that institutions and individuals may seek a blended approach by to incorporating some virtual elements. Consequently, this webinar will be of interest and relevance to all educators in the higher education context. The structure of the webinar will consist of presentations for forty minutes followed by a Q&A for twenty minutes. The webinar will involve:

• An overview of the planning activities that are needed to effectively teach online • An interactive element demonstrating best practice including signposting, landing pages, Moodle pages, the virtual lab environment etc • Q&A
