Module 12A | Online teaching: connecting with your students

How can you encourage students to react online? How do you get students to react in a plenary discussion? What questions inspire interaction? How can you create a lesson in which interaction is the norm?

Course description

One of the biggest challenges right now–ironically- is to connect with your students during online teaching. Maybe you recognize the situation in which you ask something, and there is no response. In this module, we will practice asking the right questions and setting up the preconditions (regarding group norms and lesson design) for an interactive online class.

Target group

This module is targeted to employees of our faculty who give online classes of small group size (less than 30 students). It is open for everyone who is teaching at the FNWI, so for example for teachers 3 and 4, tutors and teaching assistants (PhD’s and student assistants).
