Develop your online teaching technique.

What we know from research is that effective online learning results from careful course design and planning – underpinned by a robust ‘teacher’s toolkit’ to maximise your online classroom experiences.

Take the time and space to reflect on your current practice and fine-tune your teacher toolkit, including your online presence, rapport, promoting engagement, voice and language, time management, managing technology and planning.

This course is part of the “Teaching English online and using educational technology” specialism course series, expertly designed to support teachers with online teaching experience, who would like to consolidate, refine and further develop their skills.

On demand courses for schools or organisations: This course can also be offered ‘on demand’ at a time that suits you for groups of 10 or more teachers. E-mail: for more information.
