Webinar on “Teaching Online”. Friday, March 27th, at 11 GMT (12:00 CET) by Bifröst University

March 27, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This Friday, March 27th, at 11 GMT (12:00 CET) Bifröst University is offering a short online webinar, where the topic is Teaching Online.

Teaching Online can be a challenge, but offers all sorts of opportunities for students and teachers alike. All over the world, we are having to make changes to our daily lives, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While we are mindful of the uncertainty that our students face, communication and outreach are important. As work and studies continue at our universities, we must quickly adopt new approaches. Bifröst University has offered distance learning programs for over 20 years now.

In a one-hour webinar, we want to invite our colleagues to hear what our teaching and tech support staff can share, in three short segments, followed by a Q&A session. Headline topics are

  • Teaching Online as a temporary measure
  • Ways to enrich content and engage students in a Blended Learning environment
  • Using Virtual Classrooms to allow students to interact remotely
  • Managing Technical Support and ICT tools available
