Ekspert eetris: "Distantsõpe – kust kohast jätkuvalt king pigistab?“

Distantsõppest on koroonakriisi valguses saanud nii üldhariduskoolides kui ka ülikoolides tavapärane õppevorm ja uus reaalsus. See on arendanud ka õpilaste ja õpetajate digioskuseid.

Kuidas aga mõjub distantsõpe õppetöö kvaliteedile ja teadmiste omandamisele?

Kuidas tõsta distantsõppe tõhusust ning kui head on meie õppejõudude ja õpetajate digipädevused selle läbiviimiseks?

Arutleme saates „Ekspert eetris“ värske uuringu valguses distantsõppe õppetundidest ja kogemustest.
