Teaching Online 1: Blogs and webinar
Monday 13 September 2010
by Nicky Hockly
To celebrate the launch of our new book, Teaching Online, my co-author Lindsay Clandfield and I have a couple of goodies up our (virtual) sleeves.
12 online activities, online
It seems to us that the best way to spread the word about Teaching Online, is, well, online. So Lindsay and I decided to write a guest post on each other’s blogs. Our posts each describe six of our favourite teaching online activities. This way you get 12 cool online teaching ideas – 6 from Lindsay on my blog E-Moderation Station, and 6 from me on Lindsay’s blog, Six Things! Go along and check them out!
Free Teaching Online Webinar 22 September
We’re hosting a free webinar (online seminar) about teaching online, on 22 September. In it, we’ll talk about some of the do’s and don’ts of online teaching, the can’s and can’ts. You will experience at first hand some of the online activities from our book, and you can share some of your own online activities and experiences with us all. We’ll also be holding a raffle during the webinar and giving away (yes, completely free!) several copies of Teaching Online to participants. You just need to be there to be eligible.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday 22 September 16.30h – 17.30h CET (Central European Time). Check the exact time in your country, and if you can make it, sign up online with your name and email. We will email you a link to the webinar room half an hour before the webinar is due to start.
After the webinar, I’ll be blogging here on the Delta Development Blog regularly until the end of October. I’ll be looking mainly at tips, tricks and techniques for teaching online. As my interest is in all things to do with technology and teaching, I may stray off into other related areas, such as the use of technology in the classroom (not just at a distance).
So, Lindsay and I hope you’ll make it to the webinar on 22 Septemb,er and if you have any questions related to teaching online (the book or the actual practice of teaching online), please do post your question(s) here. We can then refer to them in the webinar. Even if you can’t make it to the webinar, we’ll post a link to the recording here in this blog, and you will hopefully hear your questions addressed!
Very much looking forward to interacting with you here in this blog (and possibly in the webinar) over the coming weeks!
