In these times of lockdown due to the Coronavirus COVID-19, face-to-face educational functions and activities are being moved online, using remote working sites and tools. Many of us are struggling with the adjustment to working and teaching online, especially those who have always taught in a traditional classroom and are now being asked to rapidly regroup and prepare for a longer period of educational “social distancing”. Where do you begin? How do you manage the process?
To address these questions and many others, EDEN will be rolling out a series of practical webinars on how to take face-to-face education online. These webinars will start by focussing on the day-to-day challenges our teachers and educators face and move on to consider other, broader institutional aspects.
These #onlinetogether #covid19 webinars are especially developed for these uncertain times, featuring experts and experienced practitioners within the field of open, distance, and e-learning. These weekly, one-hour webinar sessions will be held every Monday at 17:00 CEST, starting on March 30, 2020. Each webinar will consist of a brief presentation addressing the webinar topic, that will be further complemented by a question-and-answer session, where you are greatly encouraged to participate, share your opinion and experiences, and ask your most pressing questions.
