Week 1 Teaching online is different


Welcome to Take Your Teaching Online!

This week, you will find out how the course works, set up a study area if necessary, define your personal study goals, schedule time for study, and decide where you will make and store your notes. You will also have the chance to reflect on the work that students need to do as they prepare for online learning. The work involved in preparing to study, finding the way around an unfamiliar course, and perhaps using unfamiliar tools or technologies takes time, and it is important to take this into account whenever you are planning online learning.

By the end of this week, you should be able to:

  • understand what digital badges are and why they are used;
  • identify important aspects of preparation for online study;
  • recognise ways in which social media can be used to support learning;
  • support the development of independent learners.
