How do you actually 'do' TBL online?
If you're a novice distance learning educator, teaching using TBL online can be a daunting prospect: how can it still be engaging if everyone is suffering from zoom fatigue? Can it still be inclusive? Will you need to learn all sorts of complicated new tools?
If you are struggling with the practicalities of how to create an online active, collaborative environment and how to use available resources to support effective delivery, this webinar is for you.
We will guide you through two very different approaches for TBL remote education practice:
1) asynchronous using only a VLE and
2) synchronous using a VLE, MS Teams and some specialist software
You'll be able to compare and contrast the benefits of both and have some authentic examples to act as inspiration as you develop your own practice.
You'll hear from:
