#2 Learning Remotely, Together
Webinar #2: Learning Remotely, Together: Mode, structure, community
In this second webinar of the AHEEN digital pedagogy series we get started with Remote Teaching, Learning and Assessment (RTLA) and explore three of its guiding principles. We will focus on:
The Mode of RTLA and how it differs from online learning;
A thoughtful approach to the Structure of RTLA, and the role of semantic waving, pacing, flipped classroom and just-in-time teaching;
The importance of Community in RTLA and being deliberate about your communication approach.
