LASIG: Learner Autonomy in the time of Corona - supporting learners and teachers in turbulent days
During this webinar we will try to address some of the questions teachers and learners may have in the current unprecedented situation.
Sarah Mercer will open this webinar and in her keynote talk will reflect on some the possible effects of the current crisis on learner and teacher wellbeing. She will consider a number of strategies centred round the PERMA+V model of wellbeing to help people cope.
Panel speakers; Micol Beseghi, Katja Heim, Gamze A. Sayram, and Michelle Tamala will then discuss some of the following issues:
- How do we ensure the well-being of teachers and students in sudden distance learning situations?
- Which synchronous and asynchronous activities and tools support autonomy and how can we make distance learning effective and beneficial for all of us?
- What if the technology doesn't work?
- What are some of the pitfalls, constraints and opportunities for distance learning?
