Onli­ne cour­se on Onli­ne teaching


2. april 2020 til 11. juni 2020 


Is your coun­try cur­rent­ly in lock­down? Have you and your col­le­agu­es embar­ked on the chal­len­ge of onli­ne tea­ching? Are you eager to try new tea­ching stra­te­gies and tools that would allow you to keep your stu­dents hoo­k­ed on the topic even when at home, sur­ro­un­ded by many distra­ctions? A qui­ck con­ver­sa­tion with the Euro­Clio com­mu­ni­ty proves that you are not alo­neMany tea­chers from across Euro­pe are, in this very moment, desig­ning their next (onli­ne) history les­son, and won­de­ring how to make it inte­r­e­sting and infor­ma­ti­ve for 20+ tee­na­gers, in 20+ dif­fe­rent rooms.

For this rea­son, we have deve­l­oped a cour­se of seven les­sons that tack­le dif­fe­rent aspects of onli­ne tea­ching, and refer to use­ful stra­te­gies and tools. With this cour­se, who will see dif­fe­rent spe­a­kers sha­re their expe­ri­en­ces, as well as some use­ful tips and tri­cks on how to appro­ach the chal­len­ge of onli­ne tea­ching, we hope to gui­de tea­chers from all across Euro­pe in trans­fer­ring their acti­vi­ties from the clas­s­room to the web. The cour­se will be held free of charge.

Regi­ste­ring will allow you to recei­ve upda­tes on the course’s ses­sions, inclu­ding pre­views of the con­tent, remin­ders of the publi­ca­tion, and feed­ba­ck forms. At the end of the cour­se, we will relea­se a cer­ti­fi­ca­te to all educa­tors who took part to at least 5 lessons.
