eTUBE – Continuing Professional Development Programme for Online Teaching
Concurrent Session 2
How do I transfer my classroom teaching into an online environment? What skills do I need? How can I engage my students? Teachers need support before taking the step into the world of online teaching. A combination of pedagogical and technical skills provides a working model for professional development programme.
Institutions are moving from traditional classrooms to online environments. In doing so, they expect teachers and students to adapt to new situations, new methods and new tools at a fast pace. There tends to be a wide selection of courses available for technical skills but often the pedagogical skills are neglected. Technical and pedagogical skills should go hand in hand, and teachers need support in adopting the new skills.
eTUBE is a Continuing Professional Development Programme that gives pedagogical and technical tools for online teaching. One key aim is to change the mindsets and make people see the amazing opportunities that online teaching can offer. The programme offers practical tips, examples and models for teaching so that the choice of methods and tools support the learning objectives in the new environments.
This successful programme consists of seven modules that take participants through a step-by-step process for developing an online implementation. It follows the principles of innovation pedagogy and gives the participants a chance to create an online course that has been developed in collaboration with colleagues and experts, and is ready to be implemented!
Session outcomes: Participants will get an overview of a training programme that combines pedagogical and technical skills. They will learn about innovation pedagogy and gain an understanding of how such approach can be used in continuing education. They will gain practical examples of developing online teaching skills of teaching staff.
Session materials: Participants will be given a handout of the eTUBE Continuing Professional Development Programme contents, methods and objectives
