THE ONLINE CLASSROOM: STRATEGIES FOR EFFECTIVE VIRTUAL LEARNING

In today’s educational landscape, effective integration of digital tools and media is a vital component of university teaching and learning. Educators can enhance their online teaching practices by incorporating diverse digital elements, making their courses more multifaceted and engaging for students.

However, successful online teaching goes beyond the mere use of digital tools and is also not a copy of familiar face-to-face formats. It requires a deep understanding of didactic principles and the ability to skillfully integrate digital tools with pedagogically sound practices. When done effectively, this integration not only enriches the online learning experience but also helps students develop strategies for lifelong, self-directed learning.

Learning goals

Throughout the workshop, participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of fundamental concepts in the didactic design of online teaching and learning arrangements.
  • Get to know various methods and tools for creating interactive and sustainable teaching experiences in the online environment.
  • Have the opportunity to explore and experiment with these tools firsthand whenever possible, allowing for immediate application and skill development.
  • Develop strategies for integrating digital tools seamlessly into pedagogically sound teaching practices, enhancing student engagement and learning outcomes.

By the end of the workshop, participants will not only have expanded their theoretical knowledge of online didactics but will also have acquired practical skills and techniques that they can immediately apply in their own teaching contexts.

Content

  1. Digital Teaching and Learning Scenarios: Participants will examine various digital teaching and learning scenarios, exploring how different technologies can be effectively integrated to create engaging and effective learning environments.

  2. Motivational Design for Learning Arrangements: This segment focuses on strategies for designing online learning experiences that foster motivation and engagement among students, enhancing their overall learning outcomes.

  3. Designing Online Phases: Participants will learn how to structure and sequence online learning activities effectively, ensuring a coherent and engaging learning experience for students throughout the course.

  4. Constructive Alignment for Didactic Design: This session will introduce participants to the concept of constructive alignment, emphasizing the importance of aligning learning outcomes, assessments, and teaching activities to optimize student learning.

  5. Media Didactic Course Planning: Participants will explore methods and strategies for planning media didactic courses, considering how different types of media can be used to enhance teaching and learning in online environments.
