Most importantly, the title of my presentation is:
From Blended to Distance Learning: Engaging Large Student Groups Online
In short, I developed an interactive online facilitated IELTS course for more than 500 students. The course combines synchronous and asynchronous learning. By creating a collaborative learning environment, students have a chance to become peer-teachers and participate in the assessment.
The course consists of:
- A diagnostic language test;
- Separated modules for each live lecture;
- Lesson recordings for revision;
- Self-grading listening and reading tests;
- Collaborative activities which consist of discussion, oral, written presentations and reflections.
Present educators will hear effective examples of classroom differentiation needed to create a large facilitated course for adult students. Most importantly, the participants will hear about the application of blended learning in an online learning environment. The present participants will also be able to create an engaging course outline for their content area, along with course objectives and syllabus.
Join us in Miami on EdmodoCon live or via Zoom for some real teacher PD.
