Session 1 Foundations of online teaching


Session description

This Session develops a theoretical understanding of online teaching and provides a sound base for teaching and learning online, whether synchronously, or asynchronously. It has been designed as an introduction to the other two Sessions in the Course, but can stand alone as a broad introduction to the field.

By the end of the Session, the participant will:

  • understand the theoretical underpinning of online teaching
  • define synchronous and asynchronous online teaching
  • identify the possibilities of online teaching.

Assessment Task

  • Multiple choice questions completed online.
