Abstract:

This one off, free webinar will give you ideas on how to improve your teaching from home.
For the next few weeks we will, probably, find ourselves as teachers having to find a way to connect with each of our pupils from a distance, to deal with their welfare and to ensure the continuation of their studies.
Many of us also have our own children and family at home and this new situation becomes a juggling act.
This session will give you tips to help you keep sane, as well as a number of internet tools you can use to make this time more pleasurable for you and your students.
