Make the Right Choice! Deciding Between Asynchronous Online Learning, Synchronous Online Learning and Face-to-Face Learning
In this session we will explore possibilities and limitations of asynchronous online learning, synchronous online learning and face-to-face learning from a teacher’s perspective. Taking a pedagogical-didactical perspective, we will look at key issues and questions that you will need to consider whether you face making a choice - or a blend.
- Be able to choose when to apply asynchronous online learning, synchronous online learning or face-to-face learning.
- Become better equipped to design for blended and online learning.
