Elements of online teaching are becoming increasingly common features in learning programmes. This ranges from teachers taking the initiative and integrating online tools into their teaching to more formalised blended or fully online courses. For teachers, then, this means there is a need to develop skills in the areas of moderating online content, motivating learners to participate in online activities and technical and pedagogical skills for e-learning.
But what does it mean to be a 'good' e-tutor?
What skills are needed?
How can you tell if you are doing it well?
The Starting E-moderating course from the British Council introduces these skills using loop input to train teachers and allow them to discover how online learning can fit into their own contexts.
Watch a recording of the webinar to see the course materials and the record of work you will be assessed on, interact on the platform used on the course for synchronous sessions and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
