Developing soft skills through remote teaching

  1. Critical Thinking

Gabriel Ribeiro will discuss how critical thinking can be developed in an online environment. How can we ensure that students are engaged? How can we monitor them effectively? How can we allow for the free exchange of ideas when there are medium constraints? Join us in analyzing key aspects in the development of critical thinking skills and understanding how these skills can be fully activated through remote teaching.

He is currently an academic consultant at Troika, focusing on teacher development, educational management and materials design.

     2. Enquiry Learning

Leticia Moraes will explore enquiry learning and how letting students pursue what ignites their intellectual curiosity does not mean allowing them to do as they please. What are the specificities of this education approach and what are their implications in an online learning environment? In this webinar, we will discuss what is being said about enquiry learning and how we can foster learner independence through remote teaching.

     3. Digital Literacy

Paulo Dantas will present key concepts of digital literacy and discuss how this skill can be developed through remote teaching. Does having students online for classes help or hinder efforts to make them deal with information that is obtained through digital platforms? What are the impacts of having students more in touch with technology in a wider variety of contexts to the process of teaching them how to deal with information available digitally? Come find out more about this and much more in this webinar.
