12th May at 15:00hrs: Dr Maria Cutajar Teaching using digital technologies: emergency or emergent?
During this webinar we will discuss teaching mediated by digital technologies. We will look at 5 different ways of teaching that emerged from research carried out before the current public health crisis and the dimensions of awareness critically shaping them. While earlier, there was derived from this work an argument that transmission and participation are facets of the same technology enhanced/mediated teaching process, what is observed going on suggests a lot of emergency remote teaching which if constructively (and mutually) supported and challenged may lead to (principled) online teaching.
