Delivering asynchronous teaching

Teaching Online (Part 1 – Asynchronous)

  • Create and sustain community and sense of belonging through active inclusive learning materials and activities;
  • Provide meaningful activities and formative assessment opportunities for your students.
  • Establish connections between the live and asynchronous events.

In order to model the flexible learning practice, we will ask you to look at some resources beforehand. This should not take more than 30 minutes of your time.
