Enhancing Remote Learning

Educators have adapted and adopted new strategies as schools adjust to hybrid and remote learning throughout the pandemic. ‘Classroom management’ has taken on a new meaning when teachers and students can’t see each other. Engaging students in such a set-up is a challenge on its own. Lastly, assessments need to be rethought — how can we make it less stressful and more meaningful for our students, while still measuring their key competencies?

Handbook for Educators

In this three-part webinar series, held from 11 to 25 November 2021, educators from Southeast Asia shared how working on these areas can enhance remote teaching and learning.

Part 1 | Enhancing Remote Live Teaching

The first of three parts saw three education professionals sharing methods and tools for creating an engaging and inclusive remote learning experience. Creating engaging and effective online learning experiences can still be a challenge for many educators. Our panellists detailed how careful lesson planning and interactivity are key to retaining students’ attention. Watch full webinar.

Part 2 | Supplementing Online Teaching

In this second part, we looked at how educators can motivate students to be self-directed learners and help them learn at home. The session brought together three more educators from the Philippines and Malaysia to share real-life strategies on making remote learning effective and engaging. A common problem educators are all too familiar with is retaining students’ engagement in asynchronous lessons. Our panellists discussed how interactivity in remote lessons remains key to retaining students’ motivation, even when teachers and students cannot communicate in real time. Watch full webinar.

Part 3 | Enriching Remote Assessments

In the final part of this series, we unpacked a problem vexing educators in this time of remote learning: assessing students equitably and empathetically. In this session, three educators from Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines discussed various remote assessment tools and strategies for students at every level of technology access.  Watch full webinar.
