In these uncertain times due to the Coronavirus COVID-19, many of us are struggling with the adjustment to working and teaching online. Where do you begin? How do you manage the process?
To address these questions and many others, EDEN is organising a series of practical webinars entitled “EDEN webinar series: Education in time of a pandemic #onlinetogether #covid19”. These webinars are featuring experts and experienced practitioners within the field of open, distance, and e-learning.
The weekly, one-hour sessions are held every Monday at 17:00 CEST, from March through June, 2020.
The current pandemic has accelerated a change from what was already beginning to happen anyway, that of the transition from traditional classroom education to its online equivalent. Given this sudden change, the teachers, instructors and faculty are having to adopt new technology and techniques. In this talk some guidelines are covered to help make decisions about online teaching and helping students in the digital age.
