Webinar on Zoom hosted by ELTAF: REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!!!

The crisis we are living through has led to unprecedented changes, not least for teachers, schools, universities and institutions forced to swiftly change to teaching online, at least temporarily. The steep learning curve involved can be disorienting. This webinar aims to provide a ‘systematic approach’ for language teachers on how to re-structure classroom teaching for online delivery. It includes:

  • a focus on the similarities and differences between classroom and online delivery in terms of pedagogy and practicalities
  • hands-on experience using ZOOM as a platform for delivering synchronous online language classes
  • ideas for asynchronous online delivery
  • hands-on experience of language learning activities covering grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and the four language skills
  • tips for good practice.

There will be time for attendees to share their own practical teaching ideas and ask questions. Participants will finish the workshop with a clear understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to teach online.
