ADCET Webinar: Three essentials in the move on-line
This ADCET webinar was in partnership with the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE). We were joined by presenters Cathy Stone and Nicole Crawford.
With the need to quickly convert face-to-face classes, guidelines developed from recent Australian research can offer some direction. While it won’t be possible to follow them all immediately, there are three essentials to aim for.
- Recognise the diversity of student needs, including the need for flexibility to combine study with multiple other commitments and needs.
- A strong teacher-presence is crucial. Students need regular and meaningful communication with teachers to remain engaged and connected with their learning community.
- Interactive and engaging course design, e.g. short videos; varied formats and content, through simple-to-use technology.
This webinar talks more about these three essentials and ways they can be delivered.
