Take a look at the ways to use webinars for collaboration; create a ‘virtual classroom’, help support students online, or effectively work with colleagues interstate or overseas.
About this session
Web conferencing can be a powerful tool in bringing together geographically dispersed teachers and learners. Now, with advances in technology, web conferencing is being increasingly used in higher education as another communication and collaboration tool.
Participants in this session will be given advice on how to design activities and to use the tools available within the platform to ensure that your learners are given an interactive and engaging experience. Using case study examples, participants will be given a general orientation to the tool as will take part in low level interactive activities.
This session will be of particular interest to academics interested in using synchronous activities in their subject, for researchers interested in collaborating with colleagues overseas and for professional staff interested in using this technology to organising cross-campus meeting or informal department training sessions.
