Differentiated Learning Online:
How to Engage and Manage Online Classes
Language learning is not a ‘one size fits all’ endeavor.
Ensuring that all students are learning course curriculum while also getting the support needed for individual needs can require additional preparation in an online class, requiring strategic classroom management.
Online language teaching may require managing large classes, managing multi-level proficiency classes, and managing other student needs.
In this webinar, participants will learn strategies for creating engaging courses that aid with the challenges of differentiating learning online. Participants will leave with ideas for how to implement strategies to create an active classroom that works for everyone.
