20211023T0935 20211023T1005 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Independent Learning Opportunities in the Online Classroom.

It is widely recognised that autonomous or independent learning is vital for a students' success in learning a language. Unfortunately, it can often be difficult for teachers to encourage and motivate students to engage with independent learning opportunities in and out of class. The online classroom presents even more difficulties as teachers often cannot "see" what students are doing (and students often struggle to maintain focus and motivation). However, the online classroom often presents more opportunities for autonomous and asynchronous learning. In this presentation, I will share tips for motivating and encouraging students to engage with autonomous and asynchronous learning opportunities in the online teaching environment. In addition, the presentation will introduce some useful online tools that teachers can utilise when teaching online. Participants will leave the session with practical ideas of how to better encourage and develop independent learning in online classrooms. Furthermore, they will be introduced to online tools that can be immediately used in their own teaching contexts with little to no setup.
