Full course description
The landscape of education is rapidly changing. Teachers are now being asked to teach their students using platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams for online instruction. Many teachers are being thrown into the new world of online education without much training or support. We are here to help break down online education and help teachers effectively use strategies that work for both themselves and their students. The model we use for this professional development is to pinpoint specific needs and address them individually. These are short, 30 minute to 1 hour, sessions that can help you in your classroom immediately.
Online student assistants are one or more student helpers who assist the teacher in an online setting. To help the teacher they may, help test technology prior to the session, monitor questions from other students in the chat, point out technical issues for the teacher, lead class discussions, and more! This course will help teachers understand the benefits of having a student assistant for live, online lessons and will provide tips, tricks, and resources for immediate implementation.
