In the last couple of years, educators and institutions have faced rapid changes to fully online learning and teaching. However, online learning can lack flexibility and interaction, due to a number of reasons. This webinar focuses on the highly relevant topic of how to embed interactive, flexible learning successfully into courses.

To achieve interactivity and flexibility in the online and face-to-face mode, expertise in design for learning has to be developed alongside technical competency so that the questions of how? and why? are considered in tandem. It is also important that educators move from technical questions and how a tool functions to the rationale for the use of a certain pedagogical strategy for which a tool could be used. Furthermore, underlying concepts need to be considered about how people learn, the type of learning required and ways to support learning to achieve a particular learning outcome.


Join this free FLANZ webinar to hear our presenters consider the following questions and more:

  • Why should we care about what students do and offer activities?
  • How can we utilise online learning to add value to face-to-face learning?
  • What are the underpinning principles?
  • What could embedding look like?
  • Which strategies work in certain situations and with a certain class size?

Our presenters will share their experiences through a short presentation or activity each, followed by time for questions and discussion. Their individual stories will combine to a rich canvas on how to achieve interactivity at various levels and contexts of learning.
