Creating a Sense of Connection in Online Teaching
Time & Location
About the Event
It is our pleasure to introduce David White, Head of Digital Learning at University of the Arts London, who will be delivering the following session.
Teaching online can feel disconnected and disembodied. This session will discuss and demonstrate online teaching methods which create more of a sense of connection, leading to an improved teaching and learning experience and increased wellbeing.
- The camera question: how to encourage trainees to switch their cameras on and why this isn't the only way to create a sense of connection.
- Forms of presence: alternative methods that foster a sense of presence in online teaching
- It could have been a recording: how to make the 'live' online experience worth attending
- Wellebing: exploring methods of connection which help counter feelings of isolation
Participants will leave the session with a range of techniques they can employ to improve the online teaching and learning experience. Many of these techniques are focused on teaching style rather than the technology so there will be plenty for the less 'tech savvy' to respond to.
