- 14:00-14:45 - Day 2
It’s naive to think that teaching remotely, i.e. virtually synchronously, is easier to execute, less time-consuming, and eco-friendlier than traditional classroom teaching. After all, no need to print and cut handouts, move chairs and tables for pair work, and stick word of the day on classroom walls. Is it always so? As COVID-19 caused families, teachers and students to learn and teach from home, we all came to realize what key decisions a teacher makes that affect the whole lesson flow either fruitfully or with learning losses. This workshop will challenge you in your pedagogical knowledge in teaching English, test your technical knowledge to meet the current English language remote teaching and learning needs, and will help you design a portfolio of online ESL teachers’ skills and competencies working with young learners.
