Humanizing Online Learning
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. – Alvin Toffler
Recent events over the past 15 months have forced educators to tackle enormous challenges when shifting from offline to online learning. Through various forums, many educators have shared their success and best practices in using online platforms for their virtual classes. However, the shift to communicating through screens does not come without problems. There is some concern about the dehumanizing effect of technology on learners as they could, for some, create more barriers and limit human connections. In this webinar, best practices and effective pedagogy for language learning through technology will be discussed. The purpose of this webinar is to suggest how remote learning can be made into a humanized learning experience for both teachers and students.
