Abstract

Only connect! How we can connect with our learners online

EM Forster's expression sums up the importance of having not just a good internet connection, but more importantly a strong emotional connection with our learners. In this webinar, we will discuss how we can establish rapport with learners, facilitate interaction and promote learning. We will compare the pluses and minuses of teaching in-person and remotely and stress the advantages of both environments.
