Replacement or Supplement: Asynchronous Teaching, Accessibility and Methods By Natalie Jester (University of Bristol)
The PSA Teaching and Learning Network has launched its first ever webinar series on 'Teaching Politics Online: Pedagogy, Support & Community'. This series has been recorded and relevant information and resources can be found here.
This session explores the role of asynchronous teaching methods, where activities can be undertaken by students at their own convenience. The session will begin with considerations around accessibility, exploring how asynchronous teaching might benefit students with caring responsibilities, anxiety, and other health problems, as well as students who may now be in different time zones, have poor internet connectivity or a lack of private space at home. The next part of the session will examine the question of whether asynchronous teaching should replace or supplement the online classes that many people are running on Blackboard Collaborate, Zoom or Skype. The final part of the session will focus on the methods that we might employ in asynchronous teaching, including but not limited to, digital resource repositories, Google Docs and message boards.
This webinar was delivered live on Wednesday 10th June (3-4pm).
