Teachers around Navitas are doing amazing work which often remains unseen beyond their classroom or staffroom. We are showcasing some of the group presentations from participants completing our Professional Development course, Foundations of Learning and Teaching Online (FoLTO), presented as their final activity in the course.

The FoLTO course is designed to provide teachers with an action learning approach to improving the effectiveness of their teaching in online and blended environments. During the course, participants brainstorm in groups some of their most challenging experiences in learning and teaching in online and blended environments and discuss strategies for success to overcome these challenges. They then present their findings back to the group.

Following the success of the presentations, the participants were asked if they’d like to share their work and insights. The presentations being showcased in this event are:

  1. The loss of relationship between the teacher and students – Brian Chu
  2. Effective student engagement strategies in an online classroom – Maureen Ireland
  3. Emotional presence online – Willa Reid

Come along to this session to hear the latest strategies and ideas from teachers, fresh out of the FoLTO course!
