On Monday March 16th, the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) is pleased to partner with the European Association for Distance Teaching Universities (EADTU) to host this special online webinar. As many Irish universities and higher education institutions around Europe look to move swiftly to online teaching in response to the Coronavirus, this webinar will share a number of valuable tips and helpful suggestions from experienced educators.
The intention is to provide some quite practical ideas and relatively simple ways of how educators with limited prior online teaching experience can engage students in active and meaningful online learning experiences. The session draws on evidence from theory, research and best practice to demonstrate how online teaching can be a creative, highly interactive and very effective way for students to keep learning under the current challenging circumstances. There will be opportunities for participants to ask questions and we invite other experienced online educators to join the webinar to contribute their own suggestions for an active back channel discussion.
EADTU has a long history of supporting distance education (DCU is Ireland’s only member), and seeks to share its experience drawing on key European partners in helping universities and other educational institutions to keep teaching in the face of campus closures.
