¡Hola a todos!

There are statistics that show a lot of challenges in online education and this is why this section of our association’s website will provide you with some tips and strategies so we can all get better at this.

We will focus here on:
VATS resources for remote learning  and some adds on from national and international counterparts to support your proactive in this online venture. Please, be self-aware of your capacity. We all have varied skills, you do have skills!

Let’s self regulate, keep calm and keep teaching!

We would highly recommend you to check the following two videos in order to breath a little bit and make sure that you are self-aware and self-regulated on your moving-to-elearning journey: 

Learning to Learn Online 21’. Kathryn Murphy-Judy (Virginia Commonwealth University) provides advice to help postsecondary learners get the most out of their current reality of learning remotely.

How to move online in a Hurry 25’. Christopher Hromalik, Onondaga Community College (NY), provides reassurance to take the pressure off yourself and think of these first weeks as creating emergency sub plans: likely not your best teaching, but definitely helpful and comforting to your students to keep the learning happening. Each week, students and instructors alike will improve and can start to use more technologies to teach online in more effective ways.
