Taking Classes Online
Taking Classes Online is a series of interviews and blog articles, by educators for educators to share best practices in online and blended teaching.
In the series, educators share their wins, lessons learned and strategies that they are using successfully to engage and motivate those they teach.
Very little is known about effective online teaching in the K-12 in the educational space. This series aims to help fill this gap.
Here are the two latest blogs we've published.
- Viki Malcolm from Dublin - Taking European Studies and Modern Foreign Languages Online,
- Kate MacPherson from Australia - Making Adjustments during Remote Learning
If you're interested in writing a blog, send me an email and I'll be in touch.
Last month, I interviewed, UK educator Dr. Heather McClue about the trials and tribulations of taking her law classes online. Heather generously shared her wins, lessons learned, and strategies that worked when she made the leap to online learning earlier this year.
Be warned, there's a lot of laughing in the episode. So it might be wise to have the volume down if you're watching this one.
