Sophia MavridiEngaging students through asynchronous video-based lessons

Session 3

In our third webinar, Sophia Mavridi takes us into asynchronous teaching contexts, such as blended learning, flipped teaching, and fully asynchronous online contexts. As more and more classes are moving online, teachers are looking for engaging and pedagogically sound ways to help students learn remotely. The use of asynchronous video can offer unique opportunities for this but it usually raises a number of questions for teachers: What are the principles of using video asynchronously? Do teachers need to create their own videos or use ready-made ones? How can they scaffold and engage students at a distance? This interactive session looks at the pedagogy of using video in the asynchronous, blended and flipped classroom and suggest effective and practical ways this can be achieved.
