In this free eight week course by the Open University hosted on Open Learn, you will hear about the experiences of real educators, be introduced to cutting edge research, and understand the ideas and tools that shape how we teach and learn online. You will also learn useful methods that will guide you to test out these new ideas in your own practice.
This course will examine the differences between the online and face-to-face teaching environments, how to make informed decisions on the use of new tools and pedagogies, the benefits and challenges of teaching online, understanding the changing practices of educators and how to evaluate approached to online teaching. You will need to enrol on this course to access it. Engagement in this course provides the opportunity to earn an Open University Digital Badge; although it is not accredited, it is recognised by the CPS Standards Office.
