20211023T1355 20211023T1425 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Difficulties Teachers Encounter in Teaching Online and Their Solutions

Teaching online has become a common situation with teachers in many regions during this situation. The challenges they face, however, are enormous. This study aims at gaining an insight into these difficulties and how teachers tackled them in their classes. At the first stage of the research, the participants answered survey questions about their adversities during the lessons and their solutions to handle them. Once the data had been analyzed, several participants were selected to attend interviews through video calls for further explanations about their responses. Again, the data were analyzed to interpret and confirm the findings. According to the analysis, there were two difficulties that most participants experienced: (1) catching and maintaining students' attention, and (2) measuring their performance. As shared by the teachers, several approaches they adopted were: (1) using novel stimuli such as visuals and puzzles, (2) asking thought-provoking questions, (3) leading open discussions, and (4) requesting instant contributions. Unfortunately, they confessed that they could not measure the effectiveness of the approaches accurately and manage the whole class throughout the lesson. Therefore, they expected to be provided with a more efficient tool, practical training, and continuing support with classroom management.
