A new series: online teaching

laptop-book

I know I’ll seem a Johnny-come-lately to some of you, but it’s actually great to join a scene where so much development has already happened. Over the next week or two, I’ll be exploring the blogosphere and other sources to find gems related to teaching English online: either synchronously, or asynchronously, and sharing the best finds here. So – let’s start from the WHY.

Here is an interesting overview article from The Language Pod about the challenges and benefits of online teaching. They mostly talk about small groups or one-to-ones in a virtual classroom and recommend adjusting your teaching style and materials, and of course working on your confidence dealing with technical issues. And the benefits are: flexibility of time and place, developing new skills and – last but not least – being on top of a growing trend. So far so good 🙂
