The workshop is a follow-up to the Lunch 'n' Learn given on October 20, "How can my students become active co-creators instead of a passive audience?" .
The workshop is given in English.
Interaction during digital teaching
Having an element in the teaching that requires some form of activity has proven to be important for students to absorb new knowledge. Therefore, it is good to think about how you can give your students an opportunity to participate actively, even if the teaching takes place digitally.
During this workshop, we will present various tools that you can use to increase interaction with or between students. You will get to try tools such as Zoom, Canvas and Mentimeter to make your teaching more interactive. The workshop is based on your teaching so that you can apply what you have learned as efficiently as possible.
After completing the workshop, it is intended that you should be able to:
- Reason about interaction in your teaching and what the purpose of it is.
- Know and have a basic understanding of how the Zoom, Canvas and Mentimeter tools work and how you can use them.
