Fee: Free
No Available Class

The adoption of blended learning in higher education has advanced the use of technology to conduct tutorials through online synchronous discussion. Online synchronous discussions have the potential to enhance the study experience of students who are not able to attend the face-to-face class/tutorial. In this webinar, the facilitators will share a framework and some considerations for facilitating online synchronous tutorial discussion to engage and motivate students in an online environment.

We will also introduce you to Zoom, a powerful Web conferencing application that allows you and your students to collaborate in a secure online environment. Zoom allows you to share documents and deliver presentations in real time using a Web browser and voice connection. The chat, poll, and breakout session features will definitely engage your students.

Intended Learning Outcomes

By the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  • identify the key principles and best practices to engage, connect, and support students in 'real-time', online learning.
  • use the Zoom communication tools to facilitate synchronous discussion and e-tutorials.
